Description

A cinematic, thrilling, fictionalized, World War II adventure set in Amsterdam about a lock-picking boy caught between pleasing the Nazis to survive and loyalty to his countrymen.

Tygo, a locksmith's son, is forced by the Nazis to loot abandoned Dutch homes for valuables. Known as "The Ferret," everyone despises him, but helping the Germans is the only way he can stay alive. When he discovers a girl with a diamond in a chimney, he refuses to give her up. Instead, he turns spy and uses the jewel to find out information about Hitler's ultimate weapon. He has one shot to stop the war. Can a ferret become a hero?
