In this unusual and beautifully filmed documentary, filmmaker Marta Popivoda gives us Sonia, one of the first female partisans in Serbia fighting against the cruelties of Nazi Germany present in Auschwitz. Her storytelling takes us through her youth being introduced to then controversial and revolutionary thoughts, into her arrest and captivity in the concentration camp with following torture and escape.
Sonia’s voice intertwines with stunning images of misty landscapes from the very areas of these historical events. A chimney standing alone as the only remaining evidence of a home once filled with life, deeply impacts the empathy triggers as the severity of today’s European political climate presents itself. We get an exclusive and personal account of these female fighters and their view of the Second World War.
