“A handsome, compelling period piece that deftly portrays events through the eyes of its young protagonists.” – (Variety)


An incredible tale of bravery, strength and survival, based on the true story of Fanny Ben-Ami. In 1943, 13-year old Fanny and her younger sister are sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. However, they are left alone after a series of unpredictable events, forcing her to lead eleven children across the Swiss border in order to survive. A critically-acclaimed film filled with moments of suspense and tenderness.
