Berlin, 1942. Bruno's father has received a promotion and the family must move to a new house far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall, long fence running alongside cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.
