"Sarah's Key" is a movie based on Tatiana de Rosnay's best-selling novel that tells the story of an American journalist on the brink of making big life decisions regarding her marriage and her unborn child. What starts off as research for an article about the Vel'd'Hiv Roundup in 1942 in France ends up as a journey towards self-discovery as she stumbles upon a terrible secret and discovers the heartbreaking story of a Jewish family forced out of their home, a home that is now her own. As she starts to see, live, and breathe through Sarah, the eldest daughter, her world is turned upside down. Can one put aside shadows from the past?

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go
door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger
brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard – their secret hiding place – and promises to come
back for him as soon as they are released. Sixty seven years later: Sarah's story intertwines with that
of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles
onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own romantic future.
