Sarah’s Key is a fictionalized account of the actual roundups in Paris that sentenced thousands of Jewish families to their deaths.

In the summer of 1942, ten-year-old Sarah Starzynski (Mélusine Mayance) knows something is wrong.

In an attempt to save her family, she locks her four-year-old brother, Michel in a bedroom cupboard – their secret hiding place. She promises to return for him, but she and her parents are dragged from their home forever.

Sixty years later, journalist Julia Jarmond (Scott Thomas) is assigned to write a story on the Vel’d’Hiv roundup. American by birth, Julia has been living in Paris for more than twenty years. What begins as research for her article becomes more personal when Julia discovers that she and Sarah have something in common, prompting her to change her outlook on her husband, her adopted nation and herself.
