When the Nuremberg Laws are passed forbidding Jews to own pets, Kaleb, a German Shepherd, is separated from his Jewish family and his beloved owner, Joshua (August Maturo), aged 10.

Kaleb becomes a street dog, is captured and eventually adopted by an SS dog trainer (Ken Duken). At a Nazi work camp, Kaleb has now been trained to help round up and terrorize Jewish prisoners.

One day when a new trainload of prisoners arrives at the camp, Joshua steps out of that train and a miraculous reunion takes place as Kaleb rediscovers his unwavering loyalty to his young master Joshua. Together they attempt to escape the camp and begin the perilous journey to freedom.
