In June of 1944 during the last days of the German Occupation of Paris, 7-year-old René Psarolis is playing on his street, rue de la Chapelle, when A B-17G soars overhead and crashes nearby. The explosion reverberates inside René. Through the years, he is haunted by questions, and ultimately seeks answers. He finally pieces the story together in a way that changes the lives of two survivors and the families of the fallen airmen.
This short documentary, made by filmmaker Rogeir Van Beeck Calkoen and writer Erin Byrne, has been shown at festivals worldwide, and is the winner of an Accolade Award, Best Documentary Short at Geneva Film Festival and Universe Multicultural Festival.
