New York, 1944. It is wartime, and Alan, a young Jewish teenager, likes to hang out in the street playing stickball with his buddies. But, his parents have volunteered him for a task he is reluctant to take on- befriending Naomi, a French teenager who was scarred by seeing her father murdered before her eyes by the Gestapo. Now, she is near catatonic, trapped in her terror. With courage and affection, Alan struggles to help her break free from her abyss. Alan and Naomi is a story of trust and triumph, pain and joy, warmth and wonder. This is a story of friendship and peace in a world at war. Dove family approved.

Lukas Haas - While his first screen role was in the 1983 nuclear holocaust film Testament (1983), it was his second appearance, in Witness (1985) opposite Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis that earned attention and acclaim. In Peter Weirs 1985 film, Lukas portrayed an Amish child who was the sole witness to an undercover cops murder, and his work earned him starring roles in such films as Lady in White (1988), The Wizard of Loneliness (1988), and Alan & Naomi (1992) - the latter film co-written by his mother. Lukas was subsequently nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of AIDS victim, Ryan White, in the controversial TV movie, The Ryan White Story (1989).

On stage, in 1988, Lukas performed alongside Steve Martin and Robin Williams in Samuel Becketts Waiting for Godot at Lincoln Center in New York City for director Mike Nichols. Lukas went on to work with directors Woody Allen in Everyone Says I Love You (1996), Tim Burton in Mars Attacks! (1996), and Alan Rudolph in Breakfast of Champions (1999). He had a pivotal role in Brick (2005), Rian Johnsons directorial debut with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Received an M.F.A. from the Yale University School of Drama. Worked in theater before moving to New York to begin an acting career.
