The year is 1943 and following the arrest of their father in Paris, Fanny and her younger sisters Erika and Georgette are sent to a boarding school in France’s neutral zone. Their safe haven is only temporary, as the Nazis arrive, and the Jewish students are whisked away to another institution where they come under the care of the tough but tender Madame Forman (César-winning actress Cécile de France). As danger advances yet again, the children’s fate is entrusted to 13-year-old Fanny who fearlessly treks through the countryside on a perilous mission to do the impossible and reach the Swiss border to freedom. FANNY’s JOURNEY is based on an autobiographical novel by Fanny Ben-Ami.
