Today nine million children all over the world are on the run. They are the innocent victims of war and banishment. Many of these children lose their parents and their home.

During the turmoil of the Second World War they have also became known as the so called Wolfskinder (English: „Wolf Children“). They desperately fought for survival in the Baltic regions and in what was then East Prussia. This project is dedicated to them.

Wolfskinder tells the story of a boy who, driven by the search for his lost brother, joins a group of children in order to escape the postwar-anarchy and seek refuge in the enchanted forests of Lithunia.

In an East Prussian village under Russian occupation in 1947 14 year-old HANS and his 9 year-old brother FRITZCHEN lose their mother, who dies of starvation during a hard winter.

On her deathbed the mother asks Hans to look after his younger brother. Even though Hans seems less capable of coping with the upcoming challenges than his brother, his mother gives him all the responsibility: They are supposed to make their way to Lithuania where farmers probably have the interests of German children at heart. Together with other refugee children the brothers try to cross a river under the cover of darkness. In the rush Hans loses sight of Fritzchen.
An odyssey begins as Hans, searching for his brother, joins a group of children with whom he to fights against starvation, weather conditions and diseases in a foreign country.
