Hanna's big brother Ivan is her best friend, but now he's all grown up and wants to move to the big city. Hanna knows that their older brother Jens died of an overdose in the city, and is scared that she is about to lose another brother to the dangerous city. With a mother still grief stricken from losing her child, Hanna has to navigate this difficult time on her own and be brave, because sometimes that's all you can do. Cross Your Heart is based on a true story and explores the effect of grief in children through their eyes.
