Berlin, 1943. Martha Liebermann, widow of the world-famous painter Max Liebermann, cannot imagine leaving Germany at the age of 85. Her friends encourage her to illegally sell his valuable paintings to finance her escape with a resistance group, while Gestapo commissioner Teubner works to set a trap for her. But her non-Jewish housekeeper, Luise, surprises everyone and opposes the Nazis.

Based on a true story, Fanny's Journey is an incredible tale of bravery. In 1943, 13-year old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive in Italy, they are suddenly left on their own and try to reach the Swiss border to freedom.
