David is a 12-year-old boy who has lived his entire life in a concentration camp in an unnamed Eastern European country. With the help of a guard, he manages to escape, fleeing first to Greece and then to Italy, in search of a way up north to Denmark. Alone and utterly unfamiliar with the world outside the camp, David will learn to fend for himself and eventually find his mother.
