An intimate and quietly strong story of a Jewish boy coming of age in Nazi Germany as events uproot and disband his family. As the Nazis round up and deport Jews, David runs from hideout to hideout and ultimately manages to escape to Palestine with the help of an anti-Nazi German. It is 1940 and David may well be the final Jew to escape from the Third Reich. He departs as one who confronted evil, and he emerges with his spirit intact. Best Film Award, 1980 Berlin Film Festival.
