another mother's son (12a)

Based on the true story of Louisa Gould during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey.
what's it about

As Hitler strengthens his grip on Western Europe, The Channel Islands fall into occupied hands. Used by the Germans as a base where prisoners of war are put to work in slave labour camps, the residents of Jersey face a future of uncertainty and fear which frays tempers and tests loyalties among the tight-knit island community.

One such resident is Louisa Gould, who refuses to give up hope for the island she holds so dear, for her sons fighting abroad and for a rescue by Churchill's forces that never seems to materialise.

When a Russian soldier escapes the labour camps, seeking shelter, Lou realises she can't simply hand him back. Alongside her sister Ivy, brother Harold and the village postmaster Arthur, Lou decides to harbour the fugitive, striking up a bond with the young, intelligent man whom she soon treats as her own.

Lou plays a dangerous game of cat and mouse to keep the young man safe from harm, refusing to believe that the wider community will betray her.
