At the age of twelve Michael Jordan is evacuated with his school to Devon. In the midst of an English education with all its demanding rules and traditions, he is asked to look after Joe Hirsch, a refugee from Germany. The two boys have very little in common and, almost inevitably, they are divided by the fierce gang warfare of school life. It is the start of an uneasy relationship which continues for many years to come.
