As Hitler rose to power he drew into his movement young men known as Hitler Youth who were dedicated to supporting the goals of Hitler and following his every command. Some of these teenagers volunteered to join while others were forced into membership, but once in, they had to declare their loyalty to all of Hitler's plans, including his goal to rid Germany of undesirable people in order to create a master race free of persons with mental or physical disabilities or members of ethnic groups considered inferior to the pure Aryan race. Viktor, forced to join the Hitler Youth, faces a terrible dilemma because his own twin sister is housed in an asylum for the mentally disabled and is marked for death. Viktor not only fears what might become of his sister, but knows that he too will be doomed because of his genetic relationship. In his efforts to keep this secret from other vicious Hitler Youths, Viktor struggles to be true to himself and defy what he sees as a wave of evil that is sweeping his country.
