Description:
For children aged 10+ (in Norwegian with Slovenian subtitles)

A spellbinding, suspense-ridden adventure. A group of children on a dangerous journey past Nazi checkpoints, traversing great distances in the dead of winter, realize they can flee across the border only if they trust and help each other unquestioningly.

Norway, December, 1942. 10-year-old Gerda enjoys an idyllic life in the countryside, dressing up as a musketeer, running in the woods wearing an apron for a cloak, and arguing with her older brother, Otto. Wholly unaware that their parents are members of the Resistance, the siblings are untouched by the German occupation of their country. One day, just before Christmas, they are arrested, leaving the siblings on their own. Gerda and Otto discover two Jewish children, Sarah and Daniel, hidden in a secret cupboard in their basement. It is now up to them to finish what their parents started: To help Sarah and Daniel flee from the Nazis and cross the border to neutral Sweden.

"One of our ambitions was to make a classic thriller story with a serious tone that would engage the whole family, from kids to grandparents, or even great grandparents. We encourage the young audience to ask questions about their own family's wartime experiences, when nations and people were forced to choose sides in a scenario so evil it is almost impossible to comprehend, and at such an enormous cost of human lives. This needs to be remembered." (Johanna Helgeland)
