Helena was part of the Fuhrer’s army. She was told to take the children of political dissidents to an education centre. But the train she was on was attacked, and Helena and a young boy were the only survivors. Her destiny was not yet decided; she still had a choice. Be an admirable servant of her country, or a traitor. The tension of a conscience. The courage of a woman.
