Germany, 1940. While struggling to survive at an orphanage, young Didi
crosses paths with a rebellious, quirky girl who will either help her
escape a life of abuse and uncertainty or lead her down an even darker

Fast-forward to 1970. With help from a worn leather
journal, another young girl learns the story of Didi, who escaped
war-torn Germany for a better life in America--except her life didn't
turn out as expected. The stories of these two girls intertwine and
eventually collide one Christmas night when Didi, all grown up, finally
remembers the secret she buried long ago.

Chasing North Star
looks back at a time when four free-range siblings, cigarettes in hand,
roamed the streets 'til sunrise and hid from a gun-toting, mentally ill
mother who couldn't help herself. Stingray bicycles, transistor radios,
and late nights in the cemetery--just another day in Alamo. That is,
until the youngest sibling stumbles upon Didi's story.
