Paris, 1917, and war is raging across Europe. Lise Rischard, an ordinary housewife stranded in the city, is desperate to return to her husband in Luxembourg. But her homeland is occupied by the enemy and she must pay a high price to get there: undertaking a dangerous spying mission for intelligence officer George Bruce of 41 Rue St Roch. As the fate of the war hangs in the balance, she and an intrepid group of men and women, including priest Father Cambron, schoolteacher Joseph Hansen and, above all, dashing adventurer and balloonist Albert Baschwitz Meau must risk their lives infiltrating German territory to bring vital information back to the allies
