A film for the whole family, centering on a true story of exceptional bravery and survival. Starring acclaimed French actress Camille Cottin (Call My Agent, House of Gucci, Stillwater), Valiant Hearts recounts the odyssey of six Jewish children who in August 1942 were forced to take refuge among Louvre Museum artworks hidden in the Ch√Ęteau de Chambord.

Between fear, outbursts of laughter, and unexpected encounters, the children learn about independence and discover solidarity and friendship amid harrowing circumstances.
