Veteran filmmaker and Oscar-winner Caroline Link (NOWHERE IN AFRICA) returns with this heartfelt and imaginative adaptation of Judith Kerr's bestselling eponymous children's novel, based on Kerr's own experiences and observations growing up during the rise of Nazi Germany. When nine-year-old Ana Kemper's (Riva Krymalowski) father, Arthur (Oliver Masucci), a Jewish Journalist persecuted by the National Socialist regime, is forced to flee Germany in 1933, Ana, along with her mother Dorothea (Carla Juri) and twelve-year-old brother Max (Marinus Hohmann) quickly follow him. Leaving her childhood home and beloved stuffed pink rabbit behind, Ana embarks on a new life, first in Switzerland, then France, and ultimately England. Through the family's journey, Ana discovers the resilient power of the human spirit that emerges when one faces humanity's darkest sides. Winner of the Outstanding Children or Youth Film at the 2020 German Film Awards.
