It sounds like an old country song. But the country is Nazi-occupied Slovakia.
Teenaged Martin (Samuel Spisak) might already be a soccer star at school, but once the Reich comes goose-stepping into his homeland, his new star is yellow. And it’s on his lapel.
Martin is naive enough to believe a friend who encourages him to come to a work camp with the promise of playing lots of soccer; thus, his first step into the morass of the Final Solution.
His odyssey takes him from a tuberculosis sanitarium to a stint with Communist guerrilla fighters.
1:25 p.m. today. $8-$10. Lefont Sandy Springs, 5920 Roswell Road. 404-806-9913, www.ajff.org .
