It’s 1943, but for friends Tuur and Lambert (12), the occupation is merely exciting inspiration for their marl cave-war games. Lambert starts feeling excluded when attractive new girl Maartje moves into town – but doesn’t know she’s Jewish while his father is the Dutch Nazi Party-mayor. Jealous, he tells his father about the hidden pig at Maartje’s farm, and she is arrested.
Lambert makes up for his betrayal by helping Tuur and his family, who turn out to be members of a resistance group, escape to Belgium through the caves.
Based on the bestseller Secrets of War by Jacques Vriens.
