This is an incredible tale of bravery, strength and survival. In 1943, 13-year old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive in Italy, their caretakers desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland. Suddenly left on their own, these 11 children will do the impossible to reach the Swiss border in order to survive. Inspired by the autobiography of Fanny Ben-Ami. “The film is a handsome, compelling period piece that deftly portrays events through the eyes of its young protagonists.” Variety
