David is thrust into the free world for the first time as he travels across Europe. His spiritual voyage of discovery, where David slowly loses his instinctive mistrust of humanity and begins to smile, share, trust and ultimately, love, addresses the cruelties, politics, and suffering of warfare while celebrating the unbreakable spirit of a child.
Plot: Based on Anne Holm’s acclaimed young adult novel North to Freedom, I Am David chronicles the struggles of a 12-year-old boy who manages to flee a Communist concentration camp on his own — through sheer will and determination. All he has in his possession is a loaf of bread, a letter to deliver to someone in Denmark and a compass to help get him there.

David’s Story…. A Warm Touch Like Few Others
This movie speaks to the purest parts of the soul, beckoning the viewer to take not just a journey with David, but to the innermost parts of themselves.
If you know someone who is crying out to be heard and understood, someone desperately seeking a safe person to reach out to but doesn’t know how to take that first step…..encourage them to go on a journey with this young boy through a harrowing physical and emotional journey of his life.
This movie touched me in a way that very few have. In fact, it moved me so much I had to tell many friends and family members and they too agreed…it is a beautiful story to watch and celebrate. Some have emailed me the day after and said….”We were up late at night with our son…clapping and crying during the final scenes.” To the cast and crew of this film….thanks for using your talents to warm our hearts and help us believe again in the good hearts of those around us.
A Heartwarming Tale
I Am David is a film based on the novel of the same title,originally published in the USA under the name “North to Freedom”,by Anne Holm. It stars Jim Caviezel,Ben Tibber and Joan Plowright.The story is about a young boy that is sent on a remarkable odyssey as he flees a Communist prison camp set in Eastern Europe in the early 1950’s.
Seven years after World War II, a 12-year old boy named David escapes a Stalinist Labor camp in Bulgaria where he has spent his entire life. He sets out on a risky journey to Denmark, initially believing he is on an important mission to deliver a letter, but eventually discovering that the “mission” was to reunite him with his mother, of whom he only has faint memories. Along his journey, he faces danger, fear, loneliness, hunger, and encounters various people.
Johannes, his friend and mentor in the camp, who prepares him for escape, is killed by a guard, leaving David to face escape on his own. David is helped by a guard to escape, who gives him a compass and tells him he must go southwest to Greece, take a boat to Italy and finally go north to Denmark, a peaceful and neutral country. Since David was locked in a camp all his life, he has repressed feelings and trusts no one, and so feels lost and disoriented in the world.
Along his journey, though he is mistreated by some people, he is well- treated by others. Gradually he learns that some people can be trusted, and to open up and experience his own feelings. Finally, with the help of decent people whom he has learned to trust, David and his mother are reunited.
