Fourteen year-old Sutherlander Murdo Mackay agrees to collect some machinery by boat in early 1943, but his suspicions about the mysterious cargo are confirmed when he discovers that the crates are full of German machine guns. Fleeing through freezing conditions and some of Scotland's harshest landscapes as the extent of the German plan becomes clear, Murdo must run not only for his life, but to save Britain from invasion.
