Fly Away Home
After nine-year-old Christl's home is destroyed in an air raid, she and her family are moved to an abandoned villa on the outskirts of Vienna. It's the summer of 1945 and for a few blessed weeks, she finds a peace and lightness she's never known before. But when the Nazis retreat and the Russians move in, Christl discovers that her life is far from returning to normal.
Award-winning author Christine Nöstlinger's much-loved, autobiographical Young Adult novel is now a captivating feature film from writer/director Mirjam Unger. Filmed with an almost entirely female cast and crew, Fly Away Home is a deeply humane portrait of children in war, and the plight of innocents caught up in a conflict they never asked for.
