A boy named Bruno lives during World War II with his sister, mom, and dad. He is moving from his home in Berlin to another house because of his dad's job. Bruno does not want to move or know what his dad's job is.
While Bruno is outside, he finds a fence that goes on for a while. While he is walking along the fence, he finds a boy on the other side of the fence named Shmeul.
Bruno and his grandma used to out on plays at his house and rehearse his parts. One day his grandma got into an argument on Christmas and she left.
The Fury came to dinner with his wife named Eva. She was nice, however, the Fury was mean and rude.
They went to Berlin because Grandma had died. They had a funeral for her, which the Fury came to.
Shmeul brought Bruno stripped pajamas and helped him under the fence to look for his dad. While on a march, they were taken to the gas chamber and died.
