It is 1941. Hedy and her family are Jewish, and the Jew-hating Nazi Party is rising. Hedy's family is no longer safe in their home in Hungary. They decide to flee to America, but because of their circumstances, 16-year-old Hedy must make her way through Europe alone. Will luck be with her? Will she be brave? Join Hedy on her journey - where she encounters good fortune and misfortune, a kind helper and cruel soldiers, a reunion and a tragedy - and discover how Hedy is both lucky and brave.
