Parents have hidden twelve-year-old Fanny and her younger sisters in an orphanage to protect them from the raging WWII. But it's no longer safe there and the children must attempt an uncertain escape to Switzerland. Fantasy, laughter and friendship become the only weapons against the hostile world. Lola Doillon found inspiration for the war drama viewed through a child's eyes in a true story of a Jewish girl, Fanny Ben-Ami.
