About the Film:  Adventurous ten-year-old Gerda and her brother Otto are left on their own after their parents, members of the Norwegian resistance movement during WWII, are arrested. They soon discover the two Jewish children, Sarah and Daniel, their parents hid in their basement. Gerda and Otto realize it's up to them to finish what their parents started and help Sarah and Daniel flee to neutral Sweden to reunite with their father. This film is about the confidence, uncompromising loyalty, and great courage found in even the youngest of children. Recommended for viewers in grades 6 and up due to Holocaust themes/content.
