Synopsis

A documentary focusing on the life of the late Muriel Gardiner, an American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who, while a medical student in Vienna in the 1930s, risked her life working in the anti-fascist underground helping scores of Jews and resistance fighters escape the Nazi terror. The documentary points to striking similarities between the lives of Gardiner and that of the Vanessa Redgrave character in the film "Julia," which was based on autobiographical writings of American playwright Lillian Hellman.
