Liberté: A Call to Spy

Spymistress for the SOE Vera Atkins (Stana Katic, Castle) recruits two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall (Sarah Megan Thomas, also writer and producer), an American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan (Radhika Apte), a Muslim pacifist. The fascinating story of a real life sisterhood of spies and the dangerous work they did to try and stop Hitler. [15]
