Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Cursed with a sensitivity his mother does not possess, a young pre-adolescent boy suffers from the rejection occasioned by his mother's behavior. The two are vacationing on the Jutland peninsula in Denmark during World War II while his mother, a divorcee, has an affair with a German officer in the Wehrmacht. She is oblivious to the disapproval of those around her, but the boy isn't.
