“The Crossing” — a film about the confidence, uncompromising loyalty, and great courage found in even the youngest of children — tells the story of adventurous 10-year-old Gerda and brother Otto, whose parents are in the Norwegian resistance movement during World War II. One day, just before Christmas 1942, Gerda and Otto’s parents are arrested, leaving the siblings on their own. Following the arrest, they discover two Jewish children, Sarah and Daniel, hidden in a secret cupboard in their basement at home. It is now up to Gerda and Otto to finish what their parents started: to help Sarah and Daniel reunite with their parents by fleeing from the Nazis and crossing the border to neutral Sweden.
