Description


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 path.

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.
