The true story of Sara Goralnik, a 12-year-old Polish Jew whose entire family was killed by the Nazis in 1942, is a powerful saga of courage and compassion. After a gruelling escape to the Ukrainian countryside, Sara steals her Christian best friend’s identity and finds refuge looking after the children of a farmer and his young wife. Inadvertently stumbling across a dark secret behind her employer’s marriage, her own predicament becomes more precarious, compounding the greatest secret she must protect: her own identity.
