Based on a true story by Fanny Ben-Ami, is the incredible tale of bravery, strength and victory...the story of a daring young girl who will stop at nothing, and fear no one. 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 arrived in Italy, their loving caretakers desperately organized the departure of the children to Switzerland. Suddenly left on their own, these 8 children understand they must do the impossible to reach the Swiss border to freedom.
