A deeply moving coming of age film set in Nazi-occupied Holland. Adapted from Jacques Vriens' bestselling semi-autobiographical novel, Secrets of War is a gripping account of friendship and courage. 12-year-old best friends Tuur and Lambert are initially shielded from the political chaos around them as they spend their days going to school and imitating war games. All that changes with the arrival of Maartje in their classroom. When the two boys begin vying for her affection, a chain of events is set in motion that will alter the lives of all three children forever.
