Directed by Steven Oritt
This is the true story of Sara Goralnik, a 13-year-old Polish Jew, whose entire family was killed by Nazis in September 1942. She had to be brave and shrewd to navigate the dangers she encountered in order to survive. She had to think on her feet or face capture, death or other unspeakable horrors. After a grueling escape to the Ukrainian countryside, Sara stole her Christian best friend’s identity and found refuge in a small village, where she was taken in by a farmer and his young wife. She soon discovered the dark secrets of her employers’ marriage, compounding her own greatest secret that she had to protect at all costs; her true identity. Facing exposure at every turn Sara’s will to survive drove her indomitable spirit.
