    Four women reunite to reminisce about their days in the French Resistance. They recall setting up a Resistance network by establishing safehouses, disseminating underground publications to counter Nazi misinformation, and transmitting military intelligence to London. The women survived imprisonment in Ravensbrück, a Nazi women's concentration camp, and then went on to form the Association of Women Deportees and Prisoners of the Resistance. They have been recognized as French heroines, and are still passionately engaged in causes of justice.
