Paris 1942. Sara Morgenstern, a young Jewish woman whose family has just been massacred by the Gestapo, finds refuge working in the family-owned laundry of Jean Lavandier, a long-time vacation friend she has always loved. But Jean loves Philippe and their relationship, in these darkest hours of the German Occupation, is just as clandestine and loathsome to both the German occupier and the Vichy government as Sara’s religion.

The delicate balance of their clandestine lives is destroyed by the homecoming of Jean’s rebellious younger brother Jacques, who has just served a prison term for black market activities. Jacques has always been in love with Sara and is prepared to betray his own brother to win her affections....
