"Six-year-old Gretl Schmidt is on a train bound for Auschwitz. Polish Resistance fighter Jakob Kowalski is planting a bomb on the tracks to destroy a German troop transport, but Gretl's unscheduled train reaches the bomb first. When Jakob discovers her, the only survivor, guilt and compassion prompt him to take her home.
