When the Nazis invade Hungary, Marta is barred from classes because she is Jewish; her father is arrested and sent to dig ditches. Even the act of seeing her friend Peter could mean death for them both, because Peter is not Jewish. Things grow worse: Peter disappears, food becomes scarce, and the family is evicted. Then Marta hears about an obscure diplomat, Raoul Wallenberg, who may be able to help her family.
