Renowned French stateswoman and Holocaust survivor Simone Veil led the fight for the legalization of abortion, women’s rights and prisoner rights as she rose to lead France’s health ministry. Director Olivier Dahan chronicles Simone’s remarkable, decades-spanning career as a human rights campaigner, feminist and first female president of the European Parliament in this intimate and epic portrait of an extraordinary woman who transformed her era defending a humanist message still relevant today.
