Set against the complex, political landscapes of post-WWII, Milada tells the story of a strong woman, a heroine fighting for democracy, who survived imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps only to be arrested and executed by the Communists in 1950.

Milada Horáková moved amid some of the greatest minds of her time and inspired those who met her. Her execution shook the world and triggered powerful and fervent responses from many nations and renowned individuals across the globe – Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, and Eleanor Roosevelt, to name a few. The film, shot at many authentic locations, such as the courtroom where Milada stood 68 years ago, illuminates idealism and shocking tragedy.
