An award-winning tale of courage, determination and survival set in occupied France. Jewish thirteen-year-old Fanny finds herself in charge of a band of children forced to flee the children’s home where they live. Filled with heart-stopping moments, we watch as the children dodge authorities and real terrors as they make for the Swiss border, under the leadership of the fearless, determined girl.
