Abstract

Based on a true story, Virginia McKenna portrays Violette Szabo, a 19-year-old London clerk whose husband is killed in action in WWII - whereupon she enlists as a British spy, working with the French Resistance. Captured on her second mission, she is sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp. With excellent performances, this is a simple story of heroism in the face of torture and death.
