The film, directed by Lewis Gilbert, is based on the true story of Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent Violette Szabo (1921–1945) who was captured and executed while serving in Nazi-occupied France. The film starts with Szabo's life in London early in the war and her marriage to French Army officer, Etienne Szabo, stationed in the city. Following Etienne's death in the North African front, Szabo enlisted as a spy for the SOE in France due to her language skills. On her second mission into occupied France, Szabo was captured by the German army, interrogated, tortured and deported to Ravensbrück concentration camp in Germany, where she was executed.
