They were hiding Jews and other fugitives in Central France during the Second World War. They risked their own lives taking such a stand. Who were these people, the descendants of France's Protestant minority? Were they heroes? What made them resist the Nazis and their collaborators, the French police? Is it possible to find traces of that behavior in this region's French society today? This provocative documentary challenges one&#x2019%x;s own reaction to people of other cultures in a time of worldwide migration.

The material itself should be compelling- the people of an area of France risk their lives to hide and aid Jewish and other refugees from the Germans in the Second World War. And yet it's undone by a general meandering style of storytelling. The near ceaseless music becomes exceedingly distracting as well. If only this had been left in better hands, the resulting documentary could have done well.
