Lars is finally a member of the St. Petri group. Sworn to oppose the German occupation of Denmark, the boys steal German license plates, deface Nazi posters, and deflate German tires. But when Lars discovers a stolen German Luger, the gun changes everything. It brings them Otto, a young brickyard worker, whose ruthlessness and daring urge the group into heightened risks. Freedom is all that matters, and suddenly it is worth everything--even their lives.
