Fanny and her sisters attempt to escape Nazi occupied France but face many dangers ahead of them. Based on a true story, this is an incredible tale of bravery, strength, and survival; a story of a daring young girl who will stop at nothing and fears 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 arrive in Italy, their caretakers desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland. When they are suddenly left on their own, these 11 children do the impossible to reach the Swiss border and freedom.
