Lovely coming of age drama set in Sweden around the time of WWII, follows a young man who doesn't know his real father is Jewish, a fact his adoptive parents try desperately to hide as Nazi influence begins to spread across Europe. He befriends a young Jewish boy, and their stories form something both beautiful and melancholy. A solid, if a bit schematic, family drama portraying the beautiful circle of life.
