The first part, "A Storm in June", opens in the chaos of the massive 1940 exodus from Paris on the eve of the Nazi invasion during which several families and individuals are thrown together under circumstances beyond their control. They share nothing but the harsh demands of survival - some trying to maintain lives of privilege, others struggling simply to preserve their lives - but soon, all together, they will be forced to face the awful exigencies of physical and emotional displacement, and the annihilation of the world they know. In the second part, "Dolce", we enter the increasingly complex life of a German-occupied provincial village. Coexisting uneasily with the soldiers billeted among them, the villagers - from aristocrats to shopkeepers to peasants - cope as best they can. Some choose resistance, others collaboration and as their community is transformed by these acts, the lives of these these men and women reveal nothing less than the very essence of humanity.
