"Wunderkinder" 

The moving story of three exceptional child prodigies - two Jewish, one German - whose innocent 

world is turned upside down. They are forced to use their musical skill, their undying friendship and an abundant amount of courage to try to survive a grown up world gone mad. Real-life musicians Elin Kolev and Mathilda Adamik give endearing performances in this rare and mesmerizing Holocaust drama told primarily from a child's point of view.
