2 p.m.December Films - TRAIN OF LIFE
The year is 1941, and a tiny Jewish community in France is faced with some shocking news: the Nazis are coming. But Shlomo, the not-so-foolish village idiot, has a plan; before the Germans can dispatch them to camps, the townspeople will 'deport' themselves - to freedom.

In French with English subtitles.
