This is the compelling story of Polish Catholic social worker, Irena Sendler, one of the most remarkable, and unlikely, heroes of World War II, saving 2,500 Jewish children during the Nazi occupation of Poland. She led a group of compatriots who moved in and out of Warsaw's Jewish Ghetto dressed as nurses employed by Warsaw's Health Department. Realizing that thousands of children were in danger of sure death, Irena recruited sympathetic friends to help her smuggle children out and place them in safe homes, farms and convents. At great personal risk, she devised extraordinary schemes to sneak the children by Nazi guards, bringing them out in ambulances, suitcases and even wheelbarrows. Irena was eventually captured by the Gestapo, but even after months of torture, she maintained her silence. Her heroic efforts were honored by a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. Starring Anna Paquin, Goran Visnjic and Marcia Gay Harden.
