BURNING AT BOTH ENDS

Unofficially led by a deposed Protestant pastor known only as Jacques, a small group of Christians, Jews and Gypsies are forced to live in hiding together while Jacques uses a pirate radio signal to broadcast messages of resistance and hope in defiance of Nazi rule in 1943 occupied France. For their efforts, the group soon finds itself hunted by the Gestapo. To survive they must place their lives in the unlikely hands of a suspicious benefactor who made his fortune from the very War that has cost them so dearly. The film, while not a true story, does draw from the rarely told true history of Christians, Jews, Gypsies and freedom fighters of various faiths who banded together and risked everything in defiance of Nazi rule.
