Synopsis

Anna, a shy and awkward 12-year-old, finds it difficult to fit in, and when her anxiety-related asthma becomes more serious her foster mother sends her away to recover with relatives in the country. Initially unsure of herself but encouraged by her aunt and uncle, Anna befriends a mute boatman who lets her borrow his rowboat to explore her new surroundings. Drawn to a mysterious abandoned mansion on the other side of the marsh, Anna meets a spirited girl her own age called Marnie, and a deep friendship develops that Marnie makes her promise to keep secret.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
