Synopsis

After World War II, German war orphans or wolf children from East Prussia were left to fend for themselves and survive on their own, while hiding from the occupying Soviet forces. Many traveled to Lithuania where farmers secretly employed them in exchange for food. Here, we focus on 14-year-old Hans who is left in charge of his little brother after his mother dies of hunger. But the two orphans soon become separated when they run away from Soviet soldiers. Now, on top of fighting for his survival in the most difficult of conditions, alone or with other children, Hans must also find his little brother.
