Set during the tumultuous years of World War II, a Jewish mother and son find themselves in hiding with only one way out. With the war's horrors encroaching upon their lives, single mother Larissa bravely devises a plan to procure false papers and assume new identities for them both. Her audacious plan demands a profound and challenging transformation from her son Sasha; he must disguise himself as a girl. Embracing the identity of "Sala," a teenage girl, Sasha must navigate the complex terrain of living a double life during a vital period of growth and self-discovery.
Adapted from Anita Selzer’s book ‘I Am Sasha' based on memoirs from her father and grandmother’s experience during WWII comes a film about their remarkable survival.
