About The Film

In this astounding adventure story, a young girl bravely treks across Norway’s wilderness to save two Jewish child refugees. When her parents, part of the Norwegian resistance movement, are arrested, ten-year-old Gerda and brother Otto are left to fend for themselves. Soon, the siblings find two Jewish children hidden in a secret basement cupboard. Gerda vows to defy the Nazis and reunite the imperiled youngsters with their mother and father by crossing into neutral Sweden. Audaciously, the group sets out through the frozen forests, frantically trying to stay ahead of the Germans. A Norway Amanda Award for Best Children’s Film winner, this family drama is infused with a fairytale-like wonder brought to life by stunning cinematography and a talented young cast.
