A tender and intense adaptation of Lois Lowry’s novel about one of the most inspiring episodes in human history: the rescue of the Danish Jews during World War II. Annemarie Johansen is surprised when her best friend Ellen Rosen arrives in her apartment to spend the night. When two Nazi soldiers appear at the door looking for the Rosen family, Annemarie’s parents pretend that Ellen is their own daughter. Annemarie comes to realize that all of the Jewish Danes are in terrible danger, and that it is up to their Christian neighbors to help them escape to neutral Sweden. Annemarie is to take the Rosens to Sweden in her boat.
