It's 1921 and Devorah has lost just about everything that mattered to her.  Her parents have died.  Many other people from the town have died during the war.  And now Poland is not a safe place to be if you are Jewish.  When a gentle man arrives from South Africa, Devorah and her younger sister may just have a way out.  The man has raised funds to transport 200 Jewish orphans to South Africa where they will be safe.  Where they will have enough to eat.  Where they will have a chance to go to school.  And where they just might find a new family to love.
