Three people meet in a sleepy Buckinghamshire village to share the stories of their early dramatic lives. Jack is an American on a sentimental journey after suffering a serious heart attack. Waddesdon is the village that gave him a home when he escaped as a twelve year old Jewish boy from Nazi Germany in 1939. Charlie trained as a gardener at Waddesdon. It gave him his life and his love, but at twenty-one he began six years in prison camps, on forced labour and Death Marches. Irmgard was only three in 1945 when she was forced from her home with her mother and three brothers as the Russians advanced. Homeless and penniless refugees in their own land, they heard no word from their father captured behind enemy lines. Each storyteller lived through extraordinary times. Each had known hunger, poverty, fear, prejudice and persecution. Sometimes they felt shame and guilt that their stories did not match the 'official' version, yet these are authentic memoirs of ordinary men and women caught up in war at an early age.
