The story follows a remarkable rescue campaign that took place in Zagreb during World War II. This is a story about a woman who, with a handful of her closest associates, saved more than 10,000 children from certain death in the infamous camps established by the Ustashe, collaborators of Nazi Germany. For a long time, her name was erased from history, as her remarkable deeds were attributed to others. Her identity remained unknown even to the children whose lives she saved. Her name is Diana Budisavljevic.
