Paris, July 1942. Sarah, a 10-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard and promises to come back for him. Sixty years later, Sarah’s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, a journalist investigating the round-up, in this emotionally gripping story of two families, forever linked to, and haunted by, one of the darkest days in France’s past.
