As the Nazis take their mother away, three children manage to escape in a scramble across the rooftops of Warsaw. Now they are forced to learn to survive on their own. But when they meet the ragged Jan, they recognise his paperknife – the silver sword – as their lost father’s, and embark on a dangerous journey across war-torn Europe in search for their parents.
