War novella, a story of survival.
Some things are immutable. A real promise must be kept. Death cannot cancel a contract between one heart and another. Your word is your bond, it is an oath which distinguishes man from beast. To break a promise is to diminish your being; a lie to your own soul. And he who lies to himself loses his heart. WWII is raging, devouring the innocent. A dying grandmother asks for a promise. A young woman promises. And caught in an evil irony, a little girl must never forget who she is in a world that promised to annihilate her.
