Bruno, 8 years old, experiences World War II as son of the commandant at a concentration camp. His forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences.
This film, based on a book by John Boyne, offers an authentic depiction of what a family of a Nazi leader could have experienced. The point of view moves as it leads the audience through the brutal naiveté infiltrating a system hidden in the name of "duty's" executioners. The film is 94 minutes, followed by Q&A. Trailer
