Paris, 1942. The capitol is occupied by the Germans while the remainder of France is governed from Vichy. A Parisian architect, Lucien Bernard, is commissioned to design a hiding place for Jews. Initially he has no interest and doesn't want to be known to be associating with Jews. As it is, daily life in Paris is dangerous. However, the money is appealing and Lucien could use it.
