Judy Davis stars in this Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation as Mary Lindell, a real-life heroine who smuggled downed Allied pilots out of Nazi-occupied France. Sam Neill plays the first flyboy she aides.

The plot is listlessly conventional, but Larry Elikann's direction is evocative, and Davis is marvelous as a woman hiding her compassion under a veneer of brisk competence, a woman whose courage is as inexplicable and obdurate as religious faith.
