Friends from France ( Les interdits )

Summer 1982, Leningrad. Jerome and Carole are waiting in line to go through the customs service in order to enter the USSR. They are cousins and both are eighteen. One could have mistaken them for a perfect couple of tourists in love, but for a coat too warm for the season, and a streaming sweat on Jerome's face. Their secret is in many hidden pockets, full of prohibited books, chocolates and medicine. Their aim is to get in contact without being noticed and to help as many Soviet Jews, who are persecuted by the government, as possible. They are worlds apart with professional spies, they are nobody but amateurs in this secret war, but they are driven by the most sincere desire to help.
