Synopsis

Lyon, France: It is March 1943. As World War II rages, the French Resistance movement fights on. Activist Raymond Samule, whose underground pseudonym is "Raymond Aubrac" and his wife Lucie Bernard, a.k.a. "Lucie Aubrac," work against the occupying Nazi forces. On June 21st, 1943, Raymond is arrested in Caluire. Raymond is found guilty of war crimes against the Germans, and is sentenced to death. His last--only--chance for survival is Lucie. Cunning, resourceful, and romantic, Lucie risks her life for what the couple believes in. Her efforts to rescue the husband she passionately loves would seem to spring from the fertile imagination of a novelist... but this film is based on a true story.
