Adapted from the novel of the same name by the author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, this World War Two drama follows thirteen-year-old French shepherd Jo, whose idyllic childhood is thrown into chaos once his father leaves home to fight in the war. Learning to become the man of the house, Jo soon stumbles across a man in the woods named Benjamin, a Jewish escapee who has evaded Nazi capture and is waiting for his daughter, Anya, to return to him after they have been split up. Benjamin is also responsible for smuggling Jewish children across the border to Spain and, with the help of a secretive and grumpy old widow named Horcada, Jo becomes a key part in the efforts to save these young Jewish lives. Tense and inspiring, this is an insightful look into the ways in which we can all make a difference during desperate times no matter who we are.
