Secrets of War

Summer, 1943. Tuur and Lambert are best friends. They love to explore the woods and caves surrounding their idyllic village; their environment holds no secrets for the teenage boys. But the war is closing in and is about to change their lives forever. Tuur’s dad has joined the resistance and even his big brother seems to be a part of it. Lambert’s family on the other hand choose to obey the Germans. Then a new girl from the city shows up, befriending the boys but telling her secret to only one of them. A choice that separates the boys and ultimately gets her in trouble. Tuur not only risks losing his friendship with Lambert, but even his whole family. He will have to stop at nothing to safeguard both.
