Bruno and his friends are running home from school. He is going home and start packing so he can move to the country with his parents. Hi s parents name are Elsa and Ralph.
This is a work camp fo the jewish people. Bruno think it is a normal farm and he goes to the farm and meets a little boy named Smhouel. Him and Smhouel become friends.
Bruno goes to the camp with a shovel and a plab to help Smhouelfind his dad. His plan is to dig under the fence and put on the jewish work clothes. When he gets under the fence the jewish people are being rounded up put into what they think is a shower.
