Synopsis

Simon grows up in a loving working class family in Gothenburg. Gifted with a high degree of intelligence, he heads into education, but an education normally reserved for men with a certain academic pedigree, against his parents' will. While in school he meets Isak, the son of a wealthy Jewish bookseller who has fled the German persecutions. The boys and their families' lives will interconnect in unexpected ways as war rages all over Europe.
