Based on a true story, the film opens with a Jewish man waiting nervously for the train to Grenoble, in France's unoccupied zone. As he checks his forged papers, we sense that this may be his only chance for escape. The man watches as two young boys taunt a small bird on the station platform. He intervenes for the bird's sake and confiscates the boys' slingshot. But in the melee, his passport is stolen. Only after he has boarded the train does he realize his predicament. It's then that something amazing happens. Echoing his earlier kindness, a stranger intervenes on his behalf, risking her own life to save his.
