1943. Germany is occupying France. Fanny (13 y.o.) and her little sisters were sent by their parents to the OSE, a foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive on Italian territory, members of the OSE desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland. Fanny and her sisters are among those travelling to the border. These 11 children suddenly left on their own will do the impossible to reach the Swiss border in order to survive.
