It’s 1933. When her father disappears, and a man from posters appears responsible, 9-year-old Anna is forced to leave her pink rabbit and the life she loved behind and move to Switzerland, and later to France. Anna doesn’t know the local languages or customs, she misses her beloved ones, and her family faces xenophobia. Will the girl find her way in this new reality?
