SYNOPSIS

Waiting for Anya. From the mind of world-renowned author Michael Morpurgo comes the cinematic adaptation of Waiting for Anya – a powerful and authentic true story of a young shepherd that had a key part to play in one of the world’s most shocking moments in history.

Based on the novel by the War Horse author, Waiting for Anya tells the story of Jo Lalande (played by Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp), a 13-year-old shepherd, his grandfather (played by Leon star Jean Reno) and a widow (played by Academy Award Winner for Prizzi’s Honor Angelica Huston), who help smuggle Jewish children across the border from occupied southern France into Spain during World War II.
