The KitesBook - 2017
Asmall farm in Normandy, as Hitler rises to power in Germany. Ludo lives with his uncle, kite maker Ambrose Fleury, in the small town of Clery in the French countryside. Everyone in the Fleury family has an impressive "historical memory" that earns Ludo the ire of his teachers and arguments with Lila, the naive daughter of Polish aristocrats living next door. After Germany invades Poland, Lila and her family disappear. Ludo's journey to save her from the Nazis becomes a journey to save his loved ones, his country, and ultimately himself.
