A prisoner escapes. A guard looks the other way.
In Berlin 1943 compassion is a crime. Now both have to fear for their lives.
Ursula Hermann has always lived the law, never broken the rules in her life. Her discipline serves her well in her job as a prison guard.
That is until the day she finds escapee British airman Tom Westlake and all the right she’s worked so hard to maintain goes wrong…
And she does nothing to stop him.
Torn with guilt about what she did, Ursula battles with her decision when suddenly Tom returns, injured and pleading for her help.
This is her opportunity to make things right.
But shadows from the past tug at her heart, convincing her to risk everything, including her life, in order to protect a man she barely knows.
As they brave the perils and dangers of the ever-present Gestapo, will Ursula find a way to keep Tom safe? Or will being on the opposite sides of the war ultimately cost both of them their lives?
