Starring Loretta Swit, this powerful drama is based on a true story. In December 1943, three Jewish children fleeing Nazi-occupied France find refuge in a Catholic school run by Sister Gabrielle. At first the nun's young students are afraid to shelter the children from the Nazis intent on their capture. But the students come to understand and sympathize with the trio's plight and risk their own lives to protect them. Together they devise a dangerous plan to help the children reach the border - and freedom. It is a compelling drama about love and compassion that will leave the viewer warm and happy.
