Carol, a 12-year-old Spanish-American girl from New York, travels with her mother to Spain in the spring of 1938, at the height of the Spanish Civil War. Her father has joined the left-wing International Brigade as a pilot, fighting Franco's fascist regime, and Carol and her mother are able to pass letters to him via a smuggler along the frontlines. But Carol's Spanish family are conservative Catholics, and she struggles to adapt to life in this old-fashioned village. As the war progresses and conditions in the village deteriorate, her eyes are opened to a shocking new world of intrigue and danger.

    "A little gem by the name of Carol's Journey...the personal message of this type of film drives much deeper into our hearts as the events unfold in such a manner as to remind us that life goes on as much as war comes at a greater cost than we tend to realize."
