Heart-pounding suspense and unexpected romance unfold in an atmosphere suffused with the moral ambiguity of war.

In Toni's Footsteps - The Channel Islands' Occupation Remembered : A documentary looking back at the occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II with the aid of the diaries and interviews of German soldier Toni Kumpel and Bob Le Souer.
Adapted from his autobiography, The Eddie Chapman Story, this is the story of a British safecracker who was in prison when WWII broke out. When the Germans occupied the area, he offers to work for them if they will set him free and they do so, sending him as a spy to England. Once there, however, he offers his services to the British and becomes a double agent.
