"The first time I saw Joe Hirsch, it was as though he'd come to find me." So thinks young Michael Jordan when a refugee student from Nazi-occupied Europe arrives at St. George's School in England, 1942. Michael and Joe share little in common. Michael is from a middle-class English family, while Joe has known only fear and isolation in Europe. Eventually, their shared Jewish heritage creates a bond between them. Their paths cross repeatedly over the years; they are "friendly enemies", yet their rivalry takes on dangerous tones when the love of one woman becomes the prize. One man is now willing to risk everything to win her for himself; the other will stop at nothing to prevent it.
