Greenville One Center
Based on a true story, this is an incredible tale of bravery, strength and survival, the story of a daring young girl who will stop at nothing and lets herself fear no one. In 1943, 13-year old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive, the caretakers desperately organize the departure of a group of children to Switzerland. When they are suddenly left on their own in the middle of the journey, these 11 children, led by Fanny, do the impossible and reach the Swiss border to freedom.
