Following the arrest of their father in Paris, Fanny and her younger sisters Erika and Georgette are sent to a boarding school in France’s neutral zone. Their safe haven is only temporary however, and the Jewish students are whisked away to another institution where they come under the care of the tough but tender Madame Forman. As danger advances yet again, the children’s fate is entrusted to 13-year-old Fanny who fearlessly treks through the countryside on a perilous mission to reach the Swiss border, with only wits and solidarity to guide her.
Based on an autobiographical novel by Fanny Ben-Ami, Fanny's Journey is an incredible tale of bravery, strength, and survival, a story of a daring young girl who will stop at nothing and who fears no one.
