This prize winning drama tells of a young girl's survival in wartime France and the courage of the those who protect her from the Nazi holocaust. Apart from her parents, her heritage, and her name, the young Jewish girl matures from a sheltered child to a determined adolescent who fights for her country and her life. She is befriended by a priest, a widow, and a teacher who is a member of the underground resistance. A Nazi lieutenant nearly catches the girl and her brave protectors. Inspired by historical accounts, this work by a popular author of plays for youthful audiences won first prize in the IUPUT National Playwriting Competition.
