Producers Patrik Pass and Matej Minac blend archival footage with vivid reenactments to tell the remarkable story of heroic Englishman Sir Nicholas Winton, who coordinated the rescue of more than 650 Jewish Czech and Slovak children in the turbulent days before World War II, and whose efforts may have gone unnoticed had it not been for a curious discovery made by his wife in their attic 50 years later. Additional interviews with the Dalai Lama and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel pay testament to this humble man's remarkable legacy.
