Alicia and her brother Avi are interned in a camp where children are taught to forget Belarusian and to speak Russian, aided by the use of drugs as well as surgery on the larynx.  They escape into the forest through a hole cut in the wire, but are pursued by the camp leaders and left to thrive for themselves in an adult Hansel and Gretel adventure.
