By age 14, Petr Ginz wrote five novels and penned a diary about the Nazi occupaton of Prague. By 16, he produced more than 170 drawings and paintings, edited an underground magazine, wrote numerous short stories, and walked to the gas chamber at Auschwitz. A story of tragedy but also celebration, this film combines live action to create a testament to how one boy's creativity represents the best of what makes us all human.
