In late September 1943, the Danish authorities learnt that the Germans were about to deport the Jews of Denmark to concentration camps. Very quickly, the Danish people arranged a fleet of fishing boats to carry all teh Jews to Sweden. This historical event is brought to life through the eyes of David Nathan, whose family is rescued by his courageous Christian friend Else Jensen and her family. This is a tale of friendship, honour and bravery, when all Danes dreamt of one thing only: the sweet taste of freedom.
