Synopsis

Based on John Boyne's acclaimed children's novel, this moving, educational and necessarily upsetting drama tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of two young boys - one the son of a Nazi, the other a Jewish child imprisoned in a concentration camp. Bruno is the eight-year-old son of a German commandant and is told that the barbed-wire enclosed camp next to his house is a farm, and its striped-uniform wearing prisoners merely workers. Bruno's eyes are gradually opened to the true horror of what's going on around him, however, when he befriends a boy his own age from the other side of the fence.
