No Place On Earth is a documentary that plays like a feature film, bringing to life fear, bravery and youthful adventure.
Artfully directed re-enactments help visualize the incomparable existences above and below ground; these scenes are narrated by actors whose script comes from Esther Stermer’s memoir We Fight to Survive and writing of other survivors.
The film is further narrated by four real-life survivors who recount the harrowing twists and turns of evading capture; and describe how they were able to inhabit this harsh underground environment, build an extraordinary secret exit, and survive when discovered and buried alive by their former neighbors.
At the war’s end, they emerged alive, some children having lived underground so long they were blinded by the sun they forgot existed.
