Teenage cousins Erich and Katarina are just trying to survive in a city still devastated by World War 2 when the Soviets blockade the city isolating its citizens---and starving them---behind the Iron Curtain. But the Americans have food, so Erich sneaks inside a U.S. cargo plane...where he is caught by a sympathetic American sergeant who tries to befriend him. Though Erich has plenty of reasons to resent this man, in the end he must decide---should he cling to bitterness or learn to forgive?
