Rotterdam, may 1940. Young delivery boy Vincent de Graaf has a chance meeting with upper class Eva von Heerle. She’s the daughter of rich Germans who are on the run for the nazis. He is a working class kid doing all kind of odd jobs in Rotterdam. She’s on the verge of marrying a rich industrialist, not for love but to save her family. He wants to go to America to help his sick brother. But Vincent falls in love with Eva, and she falls in love with him. They both know only a miracle can keep them together. Or destiny.
Then Hitler’s army crosses the border?
