Since her father, a famous theatre critic, is an open opponent of the National Socialists, he has to flee to Zurich after Hitler's seizure of power. The mother, Anna and her twelve-year-old brother soon follow him. Because there is hardly any time to prepare the escape, Anna has to leave her beloved plush rabbit behind. In Switzerland the family finds no permanent home and is forced to flee via Paris to London.
