Un Sac de Billes

“A schoolboy game becomes a symbol of survival and resilience against the odds. Joseph (Dorian Le Chech) and Maurice (Batyste Fleurial) are two cheeky Jewish brothers who have nothing but a map, some money and the clothes on their back as they flee occupied France in World War 2.”
