Jersey, 1942. As Hitler strengthens his grip on Western Europe, The Channel Islands fall into occupied hands.

One such resident is Louisa Gould (Jenny Seagrove), who refuses to give up hope for the island she holds so dear and harbours a Russian soldier (Julian Kostov) who has escaped the labour camps. As rations on the island become scarcer and tensions rise among the inhabitants, Lou’s defiant attitude and cavalier approach to hiding the fugitive in plain sight arouses suspicion from the Nazis and distrust among her neighbours...
