Eight-year-old Bruno arrives home from school one day to discover that his Nazi officer father has been promoted and the entire family must move to a new home. While his mother and sister Gretel embrace the fresh start, Bruno is desperately lonely and he secretly defies his parents to explore the surrounding area, stumbling upon what appears to be a farm and a young boy in striped pyjamas called Shmuel. Separated by a fence and barbed wire, the two boys become friends, until Bruno learns the truth: that Shmuel is a Jew and the farm is actually a concentration camp under the control of his father.
