In late March 1944, as Stalin's forces push into Ukraine, young Emil and Adeline Martel decide they must run in retreat from their land with murderous Nazi officers they despise to escape the Soviets and go in search of freedom.

March 1944. Emil and Adeline Martel come from a family of German heritage whose ancestors have farmed in Ukraine for more than a century. As Stalin's forces push into Ukraine, the young siblings must make a terrible decision: Do they wait for the Soviet intrusion and risk being sent to Siberia? Or do they reluctantly follow the Nazi officers who have pledged to protect "pure-blood" Germans? Caught between two warring forces, they will have to overcome horrific trials to pursue their hope of immigrating to the West and seeing their dreams realized. -- adapted from jacket
