Description

The Birdcatcher is a suspenseful, coming of age story set against the backdrop of violence and prejudice. Inspired by the little known actual stories of Norwegian Jews during World War II. This film uncovers a hidden slice of history that grips at the heart and inspires us all at the deepest level - it’s a profound fable of identity and loss, of forced migration and the cost of war. Esther, a Jewish girl, has her world torn apart when the Nazis unleash their reign of terror on her small town. On her attempt to escape to Sweden, Esther ends up on a occupied farm where she befriends Aksel. To save herself from being discovered by the Nazis, she disguises herself as a boy. The daily challenge to keep her true identity a secret leads to a series of choices and consequences which shift the paths of all those around her.
