Men Without Shadows

Men Without Shadows deals with five French Resistance fighters, four men and a woman, who have been taken prisoner after a failed operation that resulted in a massacre. Beyond the guilt of the knowledge that their failure caused the death of innocent civilians, they know they are about to be tortured and killed by their Vichy captors. Each agonizes over whether he or she will break, screaming in pain and revealing the whereabouts of their escaped leader, or beg for life.
