When a wealthy industrialist offers Lucien a large sum of money to devise ingenious hiding places for Jews throughout the city, Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life or refusing the job and starving. But Lucien agrees and begins designing hiding places so expertly concealed that the Germans could rip up an entire apartment and never find them - behind a painting, within a column, inside a drainpipe. It isn't long before Lucien begins to feel emotionally invested in the lives he is saving. The Gestapo is on the hunt for Mendel Janusky, the richest man in Paris, whose vast fortune they wish to steal. As the Germans close in on Janusky, Bernard must design his most clever hiding place of all. When one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly, he can no longer deny the Jews' terrible suffering. He becomes committed to saving them, finding love, courage, and integrity he never thought he had.
