This film tells the story of a female Alsatian spy who worked for France during the First World War, based on Marthe Richard's memoirs, whose veracity is somewhat doubtful. Richard (1889–1982) was the sixth French woman to receive a pilot's license, ran in the same circles as Mata Hari in the interwar period, became close with the Gestapo and collaborators in the Second World War but also claimed to belong to the Resistance, and became a local politician in Paris in 1945.
