During the stone cold winter months at the turn of the year 1944-1945 a small Norwegian family flees from the war. Finding themselves desperate and in a tough situation, they set off on foot across the northern Norwegian mountains towards the safety that lay behind the Swedish border.
They made their way across the border after a long and hard ordeal hardly fit for humans, but carried the scars from their journey with them their entire lives. Was it worth the struggle?
This is a documentary. The story actually did take place.
The Road To Walk is a story about what war does to ordinary people. Over time it has become a legend of the unconquerable tenacity for life that lives in us humans.
This book reveals that war is not just the story of heroes; it’s the story of the individual, the women and the children who are also hurled into the angst and atrocities of war, even though their names are not etched on memorial monuments.
