Joan Allen narrates this profile of Hannah Senesh (1921-44), a heroic Jewish woman from Budapest who, although safe in British-controlled Palestine, joined a 1944 mission to rescue fellow Jews—including her mother—from the Nazis. She was captured, tortured and executed by the Gestapo, a fate witnessed by her mother. The documentary features remarks from classmates, fellow kibbutz members, fellow prisoners and her nephews, and also includes photos and excerpts from her letters.
