Plot Summary

In 1942, the young Jewish girl Misha, her Russian mother Gerusha and her German father Reuven hide from the Germans in a small house in Ardennes, Belgium. Misha is very connected to her mother that advises her that if one day a person comes to her saying "love of my life", she would follow him or her without any question. When her parents are captured by the Nazis, Misha is delivered to a German family and the abusive matriarch gives a bad treatment to the girl. However, she finds support in the family of Ernest and his deranged wife Marthe that supplies groceries to foster family. Misha loves Ernest's dogs and the old man gives a compass to her and tells that her parents have been sent to East to forced labor. When the old couple is denounced for sheltering the girl and arrested by the Germans, Misha flees through the woods heading east. Along her journey seeking out her parents, she lives and survives with pack of wolves and crosses Germany, Poland reaching Ukraine. When she sees that Brussels have been released by the allied force, she returns to her hometown and reaches it in March 1945 almost dead, sick and with lice and malnourished. However, Ernest identifies the girl that does not accept that her parents had died in the concentration camp of Sonnenburg. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Edit
Trivia The "memoirs" on which this film was based - Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years, by Belgian-born, US-based writer Misha Defonseca - were determined to be fake in February 2008. The author admitted in an interview with Belgian newspaper "Le Soir" that "It's not the true reality, but it is my reality. There are times when I find it difficult to differentiate between reality and my inner world." See more »
