Tamasz Wolfstein escaped from Hungary with his parents when he was eight years old. They found refuge in Montreal, and Tamasz, who now goes by Tommy, or Wolfie to his soccer teammates, has become thoroughly Canadianized. His parents will never forget the persecution they endured as Jews in a right-wing Hungary, but Tommy's memories of that time are scant. When his university soccer tea is invited to Hungary to play against the country's top-ranking university team, however, Tommy will learn about his family's difficult past and the ongoing dangers they ?and he ? face. And when a chance encounter with a bully from his childhood goes horribly wrong, Tommy's life is suddenly in jeopardy.
