Even after the desperate times of WWII, there were heroes. The fighting was over, but there were different kinds of dangers springing up from a new aggression. Freedom Fighters from Denmark left their quiet country to provide a jumping-off place from Russian-occupied Germany en route to safety. Their plan worked for a while. A real orphanage seemed a believable cover for the passage of those who were fleeing the grasp of communism, but one day, with the sound of gunfire, only two orphans were left to live. The man with the smooth voice said that they were to be witnesses to those who would defy the government. Karl and Anna, with the audacity of youth, plodded their way across Germany first to the haven of a farm family and eventually to the United States. Years had gone by when Anna once again hears the smooth voice from the past. Can it be "the man"? Will he connect Anna to the past? Will survival again be the only goal in life?
