Hallein 1944. The bombs are no longer targeted at industrial towns only. All cultural centres of the so-called “Ostmark” face numerous air raid warnings per day. Even the children of these towns are now evacuated. The last wave of the children evacuation programme has begun. Ferry and Alex, two blood brothers as defined by Karl May, are smart, bustling, curious and highly pubescent boys and have no interest whatsoever in being evacuated along with the others. They have come to terms with everyday life during the war. The two have managed to push into the black market trade. Additionally, Ferry and Alex have persuaded a fiery girl named Rosa to make them acquainted with the secrets of sexuality. Ferry’s mother, however, is adamant that her son needs to be evacuated. Since Alex has Jewish origins, which he does not know about, his parents are against evacuation. Both kids trick his parents to go on the programme where Alex becomes the star of the choir due to his voice. His deportation through Gestapo is already decided, a fact the two friends are not aware of.
