Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
When two German pilots are shot down over a village not far from London, a pair of little boys -- Londoners both -- find them in the woods and then have to decide whether to help the pilots or turn them in. The father of one of the boys was killed by Germans when he was escaping his sinking ship in a lifeboat, an act that would not argue for any reciprocal mercy on the son's part. Both boys are staying with an off-beat British couple (a captain of the Home Guard and a French school teacher) whose viewpoints on life contrast greatly with the way the two boys were raised -- not making their decision any easier.
