Set in 1940, the film centers on German journalist Ludwig, who is on the run from the Nazis, and his 12-year-old son Rolf. They are trying to travel to New York where Rolf’s mother is waiting for them but are stranded in Marseille. The only route to freedom is a dangerous path over the Pyrenees to Spain. Nuria, a girl only slightly older than Rolf, offers to guide them along the path. When Ludwig is caught in route Rolf and Nuria are left on their own. Rolf’s dog is the children’s only companion on the journey that teaches them to rely on one another and stick up for each other.
