FEMALE AGENTS is a thrilling wartime adventure by Jean-Paul Salome based on real events and people to construct a spy thriller set in the final months of one of the most terrible conflicts in human history.
It's May 1944, a five-woman commando unit parachutes into occupied France on a daring and dangerous mission to protect the secret of the D-Day Landings and eliminate Colonel Heindrich, the head of the German counter intelligence.
After the Liberation of France, General de Gaulle neglected the role played by these female agents, many of whom had given their lives for the cause, in order to highlight the heroes who had fought alongside him in the Free French Forces.
This film sets out to make amends for the injustice by turning the spotlight on the women who, in the shadows, had worked to defeat the Nazis.
FEMALE AGENTS is an action-packed tribute to the real-life espionage operatives whose exploits inspired the film.
