How far will a young girl go to keep her family together?
It is spring 1945. Orphaned Nancy Kidd has a lot on her plate as head of the family. The ‘Cruelty Men’ could send her and her siblings to the dreaded industrial schools. One of their spies lives in the same tenement building and holds a grudge against the Kidds.
More trouble is the last thing Nancy needs, but that’s just what she gets when she tries to help a friend in need. Just as her life begins to unravel, she meets Karla, a Jewish refugee from Prague who might know a way out.
