In the early days of war-torn France, both rich and poor are thrust together, a mixed society struggling to survive.
American born Yvette Matikunas, one of the privileged few, flees Paris with the mass exodus. When a deathbed promise has her roaming the streets with a dangerous message, she learns no one is who they seem to be and trust is a thing of the past.
Injured when trying to save the life of one of his men, Colonial André Rinaldo is disillusioned by a shell-shocked country and a weak government. Persuaded to go underground and unite his fellow compatriots by forming resistance groups, he meets a beautiful blonde, whose determination to free France from foreign dictatorship is as strong as his.
In the middle of espionage and clandestine rendezvous, they form a partnership that deepens under the ever-present threat of arrest. However, with America’s interest in the war building in the background, all Americans are ordered to leave.
Will Yvette return to the States, or will André persuade her stay and fight for love?
