Srulik Fridman, 8-year-old son of a Jewish Polish village baker, is separated from his family to escape the Warsaw ghetto into the forest and farmland. He must survive mostly alone in the wild by doing chores or by petty theft when he joins a band of orphans until they’re driven apart. Life gets better when he’s virtually adopted by a farmer, but when a playmate spots his circumcision, he must flee before the Nazis arrive. Frozen nearly to death, he’s taken in by Partisan wife and mother Magda Janczyk (Elisabeth Duda), who teaches him to pose as Catholic orphan Jurek Staniak.
