The children are terrified and their camp survival instinct is triggered.Written by
This film is so opposite Lord Of The Flies. It is a case study that despite everything, kids r decent n compassionate
The underlying meaning in this film is the actual truth of humanity n not like Lord Of...
The premise is a bit similar, in fact even more harsher than Lord Of...
Children r saved from a Nazi concentration camp but they encounter hunger, thirst and dogs in a hostile war ravaged environment.
The best part is the acting n the child actors nailed it.
The film does have some brutal n dark scenes, lil suspense n heart pounding tension.
The actual truth about humanity: v aint fighters, bt lovers. Our internal default is 2 work 2gethr. Despite everything, humanity is actually decent - Rutger Bregman.
