RAF squadron leader James Alden is assigned a mission. Escort a German girl to Malta’s airport and from there start her journey to meet her mother in the US. An air raid forces them to take cover in a bombed down chapel which also welcomes Luftwaffe, Captain Gunther Galland taking cover after he survives a plane crash and lands nearby. “Friend or Foe” is about trust and about the continous gaining and loss of it. Not being able to see the other and not trusting the other to come out of hiding, the soldiers, who know English and German fluently, try to gain the other’s trust. All this lies within a larger plot that could change history.
