12 year old Storm's father is arrested for printing a forbidden letter written by controversial reformer Martin Luther. The boy manages to escape with the original. On the run from inquisitors, Storm is helped by Marieke, a young girl who lives in the city's underground tunnels. Storm tries to save his father before he is executed and get the letter into safe hands. The boy is unsure who he can trust.

What begins as a terrifying run from dangerous zealots, becomes a fight for freedom that will never be forgotten.
