Young Bruno lives a wealthy lifestyle in early wartime Germany along with his mother, elder sister, and SS Commandant father. To his dismay, the family relocates to the countryside where his father has a new assignment. In search of company of his own age, Bruno befriends Shmuel, a boy strangely dressed in striped pyjamas who lives behind a high fence. The consequences are devastating. Based on the best-selling novel by John Boyne, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a remarkable story masterfully told through the eyes of an innocent child.
