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.

- "Exquisitely shot and told with a delicate simplicity...refreshing!"
- "Carol's Journey has an innate appreciation for the emotional vibrancy of youth and love."
- "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."
