On 10 May 1940, the German Army invades Belgium and France via the Ardennes.
Frightened by the progress of the enemy, the people of the small village in the Pas-de-Calais decide, on the recommendations of the prefecture, to give up everything to go on the road, fleeing to the coast.
Among them, there is Paul, the village mayor. He leads the group, seeking to maintain a minimum of order and republican spirit in this nomadic life. Mado, his wife, plays music trying to find the fragrance of life when friends came to his coffee shop in the village.
Suzanne, a young teacher, goes to meet to choose the least congested route. And she especially supports a small German boy, Max, 8 years old, whose father Hans was arrested after the declaration of war.
During the Battle of Arras, residents are released from prison and abandoned in the deserted city. Hans manages to flee the city, accompanied by a Scottish officer, Percy, whose entire unit died under German bullets.
These two will travel together. Hans seeking to recover his son who fled the village, Percy hoping to reach the sea, and find a boat back to England.
