About this title

Synopsis:

En 1944, devastada por las atrocidades de la guerra y por la vision de la muerte de sus seres mas queridos, Louise Desfontaines, miembro de la Resistencia francesa, huye a Londres para unirse al SOE, la organizacion secreta britanica creada por Winston Churchill. En plena planificacion del desembarco aliado, Louise recibira su primera mision: rescatar a un agente britanico con informacion de alto secreto, que ha caido en manos nazis mientras realizaba tareas de exploracion en las playas de Normandia, y asesinar al coronel Heindrich, miembro de la SS que sospecha los preparativos del Dia D. Para ello, contara con la ayuda de un equipo de valientes mujeres compuesto por Suzy, una bailarina de seduccion mortifera, GaŽlle, experta en explosivos, y Jeanne, una prostituta reconvertida de sangre fria y animo descarado. La ultima pieza del dispositivo la constituira Maria, una operadora de radio judia de origen italiano que las acogera tras su llegada a la costa francesa. La mision requerira de ellas mucho mas que pericia y valor, en una carrera contrarreloj cuyos resultados cambiaran para siempre el curso de la guerra. Basada en una historia real, Espias en la sombra rinde homenaje a todas aquellas heroinas que, combatiendo como verdaderos soldados, se embarcaron en un sacrificio personal para luchar por su patria y por la paz. / Based on true events, true stories and real heroines, Female Agents is a powerful tale of the challenges that faced female World War II Resistance fighters, who were constantly in the shadow of men, yet displayed an equal sense of bravery and sacrifice.
