They Called Him Amigo
Germany, 1939. A 13-year-old boy from Berlin, Rainer Meister, known as Amigo, finds a man in the junk room of the cellar in the back courtyard. This is Pepp, a political prisoner who has fled a concentration camp. Born into a family of working-class communists, Amigo is well aware of the danger involved in helping Pepp. Nevertheless, help he does; he also makes his two confidants, his younger brother and friend, swear to remain silent. But the friend confides in his father. The latter, a self-satisfied, cowardly Nazi sympathiser, eventually becomes a denunciator.
