Narrow escapes and bold decisions define the life of young Morris Schnitzer during World War II. Fleeing from Nazi Germany, his father’s warning to never set foot in a concentration camp echoing in his mind, Morris resolves to fight and survive. As he assumes three different false identities and crosses countless borders in search of safety, Morris poses as a farmhand, joins the resistance in Belgium and enlists in the American army, vowing to take revenge for all that he has lost.
