Inside Hana's Suitcase tells the present-day story of a group of Japanese children who, with the help of their passionate and tenacious teacher, Fumiko Ishioka, are able to solve the mystery of a young Czech girl, Hana Brady, whose name appears on an old battered suitcase in the Auschwitz Museum. The film follows Fumiko's search to discover the details of Hana's life, which leads to the discovery of her older brother, George, in Toronto. As young children, they had been incarcerated in Theresienstadt after the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia in 1939. A remarkable story brought to life through the contemporary young voices of three groups of children from Japan, Canada and the Czech Republic.
