A beautifully shot family tale of courage, solidarity and friendship. Based on World War II facts, the story of a children’s journey through the Pyrenees. To escape the Nazis in Berlin, Rolf and his father flee to New York, taking only their beloved dog Adi and their favourite book. In the south of France, it turns out that the only option is a dangerous crossing of the Pyrenees, led by Nuria, not much older than Rolf. When Rolf’s father is captured, the children and the dog must set off alone into the unknown.
