A heartfelt documentary about 100-year-old Andrée Geulen, a Belgian teacher who saved thousands of Jewish children during WWII. In 1942, she noticed that Jewish pupils disappeared from her class. Andrée decided to join the resistance organization CDJ (Comité de Défense des Juifs). With the organisation, she managed to save more than 2000 Jewish children by placing them in Catholic families and monasteries. In the documentary, the makers reconstruct this history on the basis of testimonies from Andrée Geulen herself, her daughters and two of the children she rescued.
