In Germany, in 1939, as the clouds of war thicken, a desperate mother forces her nine year old daughter Eva onto a train, sending her out of danger and into the arms of strangers.

"In England, decades later, a reluctant mother prepares for the departure of her grown-up daughter Faith, as she cuts the ties of childhood. Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound and a long-buried secret is revealed. The bitter-sweet experience of every parent as they try to teach their child to survive alone, unites these women across the decades.

In the nine months before the outbreak of World War II, the Kindertransport ferried nearly 10,000, mainly Jewish children from Germany and Austria to safety. Many would never see their parents again. In the year that marks the 75th anniversary of the Kindertransport, this is a timely and un-missable story of love and loss, past and present and hope for the future."
