Description

Adapted from Russell Braddon’s book by Roger Simpson (Bikie Wars: Brothers In Arms, Hallifax f.p), Nancy Wake tells the true story of Australia’s greatest war heroine – the woman the Gestapo dubbed the ‘White Mouse.’

Featuring award winners Noni Hazlehurst (City Homicide) and John Waters (Offspring), this miniseries event begins in 1939 when Nancy meets wealthy businessman, Henri Fiocca, while she is working on assignment as a journalist in Marseilles. With Europe on the brink of war, they fall desperately in love and are married as Hitler begins his relentless march oh Holland and Belgium.

As France is occupied, Nancy works with the Resistance to establish an escape route for Allied airmen. But her activities are uncovered by the Gestapo and she is forced to flee the country, leaving her beloved Henri behind to cover her tracks.

Back in England and unaware of what has become of her husband, Nancy trains with Special Operations and is parachuted back into France to work with the partisans. Though this lone Australian woman takes a while to earn their respect, the partisans soon recognize Nancy for the fearless warrior she is and include her in their operations. As the tide of the war finally turns against the Germans, all Nancy wants to discover is what has happened to Henri.

Nancy Wake is a gripping miniseries presentation, revealing the dangerous escapades and achievements of a well-respected and recognized wartime hero.
