Synopsis


World War II is raging.


England has opened its borders to safeguard Jewish refugee children.


10.000 young Holocaust survivors have been sent to safety by their parents on the Kindertransport.


The year is 1940, the last Kindertransport to escape the German forces has arrived in England.


Three anxious children await on the platform of Liverpool Street Station wondering what will happen next.


England saved their lives but at what cost?


Louise, Henry and Charlie are united by this historical event that changes and shapes their lives.


Their friendship endures through political unrest, missing parents, heartbreak and ethnic segregation.


When will the past stop haunting their present?


Central (Story) Line spans 67 years of friendship as they move from Churchill through Thatcher into Blair and beyond …


The 10.000 brave young survivors were small in number compared to the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust.


But for these child refugees, leaving home on the Kindertransport - traumatic as it was - meant the difference between life and death.


Now, not even a century later, has the world learned anything from history?
