Two displaced persons travel Europe during World War II looking for safe haven and trying to make ends meet. Political dissidents, Jews, medical students, petty criminals. Among the thousands of displaced persons traveling the unpaved roads of Europe, there are Steiner and Kern. Both have irritated officials for outstaying their cold, two-week welcome in Czechoslovakia, so they must leave. Not that either has any place to go; not in 1939. When a man is led by a guard to the border of one country, he must try another one, until he is escorted from that one too.
Living hand-to-mouth, selling shoelaces and safety pins for a few pennies, there are still pleasures to be had in such a life. Paris, for one; love for another. Amidst the heartless cruelty and cold-blooded laws of the Nazi state, there is still humanity and kindness. There is incomparable joy in falling in love, surviving, and telling your story so it is never forgotten.
