Film Synopsis

When Liesel arrives at the home of her new foster parents in a small German village in 1938, she is illiterate and grief-stricken over the recent loss of her brother. Her kindly foster father slowly begins teaching her to read, awakening in the young girl a love of literature that leads her to snatch a book from a pile set on fire by local Nazis.
