Berlin, 1933. Nine-year-old Anna is too busy with schoolwork and her friends to notice Hitler’s face glaring from posters plastered all over the city. When her father, Arthur Kemper, a well-known Jewish journalist suddenly vanishes, Anna and her family pack quickly for their hasty escape all the while thinking they will return to their beloved home and Anna’s pink rabbit. What follows is a courageous adventure full of fear and uncertainty as Anna and her family navigate unfamiliar lands, unfamiliar languages, and cope with the many challenges of being refugees. This beautifully rendered historical family drama is based on the semi-autobiographic bestselling children’s novel and is directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Caroline Link.
