I Am David

When 12-year-old David escapes from the harsh Bulgarian labor camp he grew up in, he possesses little more than a compass, a sack, and a sealed letter. Warned to trust no one lest he be sent back to the prison, David must use an abundance of caution and sheer determination to make it to Denmark, where he’s told freedom lies.

As David meets various strangers on his journey, some kind and some not, the boy’s bleak outlook on life slowly thaws as he learns that simply distrusting everyone will keep him in a sort of prison of his own design. 

Based on the classic book, I Am David is a heart-warming drama encouraging focusing on the good in humanity and never letting go of hope. The film is rated PG and is family-friendly, but does feature some mild violence.
