Show Synopsis:
A tender and intense adaptation of Lois Lowry’s novel about one of the most inspiring episodes of human history: the rescue of the Danish jews during World War 2. Annemarie Johansen is surprised when her best friend Ellen Rosen arrives at her apartment to spend the night. When two Nazi soldiers appear at the door looking for the Rosen family, Annemarie’s parents pretend Ellen is their own daughter. Annemarie comes to realize that all the Jewish Danes are in terrible danger, and that it is up to their Christian neighbors to help them escape to neutral Sweden.
