Based on the acclaimed autobiographical novel by Romain Gary
From his childhood in Poland to his adolescence in Nice to his years as a student in Paris and his tough training as a pilot during World War II, this epic drama tells the romantic story of Romain Gary, one of the most famous French novelists and sole writer to have won the Goncourt Prize for French literature two times. PROMISE AT DAWN offers a sweeping narrative that chronicles French author, airman and diplomat Roland Gary’s life and his complex relationship with his mother, who drove him to greatness against all odds in a Europe torn by anti- Semitism and war.
