The Yellow Bird Sings begins as Nazi soldiers are rounding up Jews in a Polish town. Roza and her young daughter Shira must flee to a neighbor’s barn to seek shelter. They hide in the hayloft, but Shira struggles to stay still and quiet as the young girl yearns to be free. In order to soothe her daughter, Roza tells her a story about a girl in an enchanted garden. This make-believe world allows her to shield her daughter from the real-world horrors that are all around them. Soon after, Roza will be faced with an impossible choice: keep her daughter by her side or give her a better chance at survival away from her.
