Przemysl, Poland, WWII. Germany emerges victorious over the Russians, and the city comes under Nazi control. The city's Jewish residents sent to the ghettos. While some stand silent, Catholic teenager Stefania Podgorska (portrayed by ER's Kellie Martin as Fusia) chooses the role of a savior and sneaks 13 Jews into her attic. Every day, she risks detection--and immediate execution--by smuggling food and water to the silent group living above her. And when two German nurses are assigned to her living quarters, the chances of discovery become dangerously high.
This is the true story of a young woman's selfless commitment and unwavering resolve in the face of war.
