Fugitive Pieces is a powerful, poetic, and emotionally-charged drama about love, loss and redemption. The film tells the story of Jakob Beer (Stephen Dillane), a man whose life is haunted by his childhood experiences during WWII. As a child in Poland he is orphaned during wartime then saved by a compassionate Greek archeologist. Over the course of his life, he attempts to deal with the losses he has endured. Through his writing, and then through the discovery of true love, Jakob is ultimately freed from the legacy of his past.
