In modern-day Paris, journalist Julia Jarmond finds her life becoming entwined with a young girl, Sarah, whose family was torn apart during the notorious Vel'd'Hive Roundup in 1942. American by birth, Julia has been living in Paris for more than 20 years. What begins as research for her article becomes more personal when Julia discovers that she and Sarah have something in common, prompting her to change her outlook on her husband, her adopted nation and herself.
Based on the best-selling novel by Tatiana de Rosnay, the 111-minute film stars Kristin Scott Thomas as journalist Jarmond. Cynthia Capers, Holocaust Museum Houston's associate director of education and changing exhibits, will introduce the film.
