Set in Nazi Germany in 1936, this is the story of George Heisler who along with six others escapes from a concentration camp. In that camp, there are seven crosses, one for each of the men who dared to escape. One by one, the Gestapo hunts the seven down, and returns them to the crosses. And death. Until there is but one cross left, and one man left trying to escape it. This tense wartime thriller plumbs the depths of human depravity and soars to the heights of human charity and sacrifice, as one man's journey through hell restores his faith in mankind.
