Come What May / En mai, fais ce qu’il te plait (15)

comewhatmayTo escape the German invasion in May 1940, the inhabitants of a small village in the north of France (lead by mayor Olivier Gourmet) take to the road, like millions of other French people. On this exodus, the villagers bring with them a German child, whose father (August Diehl) opposed the Nazi regime and who has been jailed in Arras for lying about his nationality. During the chaos, the father is freed and sets out to find his son (Joshio Marlon), accompanied by a Scottish soldier (Matthew Rhys) who is trying to repatriate himself.
