What if you are suddenly on your own and anyone could be your enemy? 12-year-old Storm ends up on an adventure when his father Klaas accepts a new job. He secretly prints forbidden texts in his print shop. Storm's mother does not like this one bit; it’s dangerous to have different opinions. The safe life Storm knew is turned upside down when Klaas gets caught in the act. Storm flees just in time with the original letter and becomes the focus of a manhunt. He gets help from someone unexpected when he meets Marieke, a girl that lives in the city's underground tunnels. In a race against time, Storm tries to save his father. But who can he trust?
