Based on an autobiographical novel by Fanny Ben-Ami, Fanny’s Journey tells the story of a heroic young girl in World War II France. Following the arrest of their father in Paris, Fanny and her younger sisters are sent to a boarding school in France’s neutral zone. They are whisked away to another institution, where Jewish children come under the care of the tough but tender Madame Forman. As danger advances yet again, the students’ fate is entrusted to 13-year-old Fanny, who fearlessly treks through the countryside with the children on a perilous mission to reach the Swiss border with only wits and solidarity to guide her. All ages.
