This award-winning tale of courage, determination and survival starts in occupied France where Jewish thirteen-year-old Fanny finds herself in charge of a band of children who are forced to flee the children’s home where they live.

When the other older kids weaken or run away, Fanny pulls the small group together to dodge authorities and real terrors as they make for the Swiss border. A film filled with heart-stopping moments and stunning landscapes, dominated by the character of this fearless, determined girl. Tickets €4.80 per person or €14.40 for a family ticket.
