Description
12-year-old Djata's father is forced to go to "work" for the totalitarian regime and never comes back. After months that feel like years, he enrolls in the local branch of the fascist youth corps. But when you are the child of a rebel you're not as easily brainwashed as the other children. Before his father was taken away, he passed a secret to Djata that could change everything. But is it enough to bring down a regime that doesn't like secrets? Based on the international best seller by Hungarian author György Dragomán.
