As World War II breaks out, Josephine and Peter leave their mother and set out on a journey that will change everything. Sent deep into the countryside to live with the mysterious Ms Frieda, it soon becomes clear that all is not what it seems…

Sixty years later, Josephine is growing old and her memory is fading. A motley crew of Archivists work tirelessly in her memory bank to stitch together the gaps in her story. What happened all those years ago? Was Ms Frieda a spy? And would the children ever see their mother again?
