Inspired by real events during the Fascist era through the end of World War II in Italy, Angel of Alta Langa is an epic story of three courageous women of Piemonte — Cornelia Bottero, a wealthy widow who risks everything to bring meaning back into her life following grievous loss; Sara Fiore, a spirited farm girl whose mission to serve humanity transforms her into a fearless battlefield nurse; and Doretta Giordano, a strong-willed city girl, the daughter of a prominent Jewish banker. In ordinary times, their lives would not have crossed, but this is Italy under Mussolini’s maniacal vision. Sensing their potential in the Resistance, Cornelia brings together Doretta and Sara who achieve a meeting of minds and hearts over the searing questions of the day: Whose fight is this? And, if this evil is not defeated, who will the Nazis come for next?
