11th Annual Houston Jewish Film Festival Opening Night and Encore: Run Boy Run

A saga of courage and compassion, Run Boy Run tells the true story of a nine-year old Polish boy adrift in Nazi-occupied Poland dependent upon the kindness of strangers to outlast the Nazi occupation and preserve his Jewish faith. An escapee from the Warsaw Ghetto, he learns to hide from SS patrols, forage for food, find shelter and an occasional job, and temporary refuge with the wife and mother of partisans who teaches him what he needs to know to pass as Catholic. His ultimate choice is whether to assimilate or assume his Jewish heritage.
