Winter in Wartime


Winter in Wartime
Set in Nazi-occupied Holland, 1945. In a snow-covered village, a thirteen-year-old boy is drawn into the Resistance when he aids a wounded British paratrooper. His boyish sense of defiance and adventure soon turns to danger and desperation, as he is forced to act without knowing whom to trust among the adults and townspeople around him. Wartime‘s harsh reality encroaches on childhood innocence as he confronts good and evil, courage and duplicity, and his own burden of responsibility. In Dutch language with English subtitles.
