In Nazi-occupied France in the 1940s, a widowed school teacher, Odile (Emmanuelle B?art), races to get out of Paris with her two children, Philippe (Gr?goire Leprince-Ringuet) and Cathy (Cl?mence Meyer).
Destruction and mayhem in the city streets force the family to flee into the forest, where they meet a 17-year-old boy, Yvan (Gaspard Ulliel), who leads them to a safe house. Once there, Odile and Yvan explore their sexual feelings for each other, even as the Nazis pursue them.
