Srulik is nine years old when he escapes from the Warsaw ghetto in 1942. He hides in the nearby forests, where he and other fugitive Jewish children struggle to survive until the end of the war. It sleeps in the treetops and feeds on what it catches or steals on nearby farms. But hunger and cold force Srulik to return to civilization, where he must change his name to Jurek Staniak and pretend to be an orphan from a Catholic family. In the villages, he meets people who risk their own lives to help him, but also those who betray him. A touching and inspiring story about the journey of a boy who had to grow up overnight to survive.
The film Go, boy, run is a true story of Yoram Fridman, based on the book bestseller of the same name by Uri Orlev.
