    • Synopsis
    • How strong is friendship in difficult times?
      The friendship between Tuur and Lambert (12) is challenged when Maartje, a Jewish girl in hiding, joins their class and only confides in Tuur, who has just found out his father is a member of the resistance, while Lambert's father is a Nazi collaborator. Feeling excluded, Lambert tells a seemingly harmless secret…A gripping story of how war can separate friends and challenge humanity, told through the eyes of 12-year old best friends who find themselves between the lines in Nazi-occupied Netherlands.
