A group of Czech teenagers sets out on a journey to the North. Without their parents or anyone else to look after them, they have only each other. That's how their greatest adventure starts. They spend four years in Denmark, an oasis in the midst of raging WWII. Thanks to that they survive and succeed to start a new life. More than seventy years later they are ready to tell their story, a coming-of-age refugee story with a happy end, courtesy of thousands of openhearted Danes.
