Alice has not seen her two children since the moment she left her husband, Matthias, who consistently thwarts all her efforts to contact them. It appears the chances an imminent court ruling will grant her custody of the children are also pretty slim. When her son's tearful voice comes over the telephone one evening before the call is abruptly cut off, Alice decides to take action. Will she succeed in gaining access to her children? And are they really in danger from Matthias, as she fears?
