In 1983, nine-year-old Hart attends Jewish summer camp for the first time and participates in a sport event with kids from a nearby town. But this is not just any group of visitors—these kids have been taught anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in school. The film uses humour and suspense to tell a poignant tale of hope and tolerance in the face of fear and stereotypes.
