Angel in the Night

4 Male 4 Female

This drama, about a young girl's courage, is based on the true story of Marysia Pawlina Szul, who was a Polish Catholic teen during World Was II

She saved the lives of four Jewish people and is honored both in Yad Vashem, Israel, and the Avenue of the Righteous Park, Evanston, IL

In the present, two survivors meet on the occasion of the tree-planting ceremony to honor Marysia Pawlina's deed

In the past, in 1942, a fugitive family who has escaped from a Polish ghetto beg Marysia Pawlina to hide them

At great peril to herself and without her family's knowledge or approval, she is their sole protector and provider for two years

One of the fugitives briefly leaves the hideout and casts suspicion upon Marysia Pawlina. Nazi soldiers arrest, imprison, interrogate and beat her, but she refuses to admit the truth

As the Russian army advances, a Polish guard helps Marysia Pawlina escape

Angel in the Night is an inspirational story of courage, compassion and heroism reinforcing the concept that one individual can make a difference and that ultimately love is stronger than hate
