Summary

A young boy who survived the Nazi concentration camps arrives in the Lake District, where hopes of a new life await.

Summer 1945. The Second World War is finally over and Yossi, Leo and Mordecai are among three hundred children who arrive in the English Lake District. Having survived the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps, they've finally reached a place of safety and peace, where they can hopefully begin to recover.

But Yossi is haunted by thoughts of his missing father and disturbed by terrible nightmares. As he waits desperately for news from home, he fears that Mordecai and Leo - the closest thing to family he has left - will move on without him. Will life by the beautiful Lake Windermere be enough to bring hope back into all their lives?

Based on the real events and lives of the Windermere Boys - a group of 300 refugee children who survived the concentration camps of WWII and were relocated to Cumbria.
