The Russian Army has invaded its long-time foe, Finland, while pursuing the German troops fleeing from Hitlers self-destructive attack on Russia. Aimo Kekkenen and the children of his village are put on a train for Nilstad, Sweden - and safety. But not for all. Aimos sister finds a warm, loving home with Constable Sten Valheen and his family- but Aimo is taken in by the Blixdals: the Reverend Bjorn, a sadistic, egomaniacal collaborator- and his desperate, loveless and childless wife, Karen.

And the remaining refugee children who are not taken in find themselves trapped in the hell of the town orphanage. The question isnt whether Finland will survive to welcome home its lost sons and daughters - but whether its sons and daughters will survive to return home. In Sunpath: The War Orphan Train, Aimo, his sister, cousin and best friend are torn from their idyllic lives in the countryside of Finland and thrust into a maelstrom.

They are the Finska Krigsbarn (Finnish War Children): the estimated 70-80,000 children evacuated to neighboring Scandinavian countries, mostly to Sweden, throughout World War II. At wars end, over 15,000 evacuees never returned home - and of those who did, most did so to parentless lives. Based on author Michael Maryks interviews with survivors and local research, Sunpath is, at its heart, an examination of the good and bad in all people and the too-soon shattering of childhood innocence - a theme sadly familiar in our world today.
