When Bruno returns home from school in Berlin, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in a crate. It is 1942 and the entire country is under the control of the Nazis. Bruno’s family is being moved since his father was promoted. They must now live within the confines of an odd camp, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence divides them from the outside, and there is nowhere for Bruno to go. The young boy decides to explore his new neighbourhood, and soon runs into a curious young boy who is very similar to himself. There’s only one difference: this boy wears some strange striped pyjamas and lives on the other side of the fence. And on the other side, there exists a world more fiercely violent and nightmarish than Bruno could imagine. These boys live in a German concentration camp, and only one of them is on the safe side of the fence.
