The story is told through the memories of Lem, who, on his deathbed, recalls his life as a 12-year-old living in an orphanage after World War II. The orphanage, for children of ‘fallen enemies’, was actually more of a juvenile detention center where the iron fist of discipline reigned. But when 13-year-old Isak, a special boy with mystical abilities, arrives, everyone knows he will be the one to break the routine. After winning Isak’s friendship through a series of difficult trials, Lem and Isak share adventures, and, above all, wage war on their adult oppressors. But when one of their exploits results in tragedy, it leads to a betrayal so great that even the dying Lem can’t find forgiveness…
