Despite warnings against venturing into German-occupied Hungary Hannah insisted that she continue her mission. Arrested at the Hungarian border Hannah and her companions are sent to a special prison where she is interrogated under torture. However, Hannah refuses to reveal little more than her name.

Schlockmeister Menahem Golan must have been real passionate about this project, because he not only produced the movie, he directed and co-wrote the screenplay. However, I am pretty sure the movie would have been a lot better had he simply stuck to producing. Although the movie runs about 150 minutes, in all that time I never got a good idea why Golan felt the central character had a story worth telling. She's just shown in one guerrilla mission before getting captured and spending about half of the running time in jail. Plus, the movie never gets into the head of this character, revealing what she really feels and thinks. It doesn't help that the musical score is awful, an electronic score that at times sounds like it's ripping off the song "What A Feeling" from the movie FLASHDANCE! I guess the movie looks okay for a limited budget, but acceptable production values will only take you so far.
