Sinopsys

Olga is the feature-film chronicle of the German Jew Olga Benario Prestes’ (1908-1942) life and times. A communist activist since her youth, Olga is persecuted by the Police and flees to Moscow, where she undergoes military training. She is put in charge of escorting Luis Carlos Prestes to Brazil to lead the Communist Revolution of 1935, falling in love with him long the way. With the failure of the Revolution, Olga is arrested alongside Prestes. Seven-month pregnant Olga is deported by President Vargas’ Government to Nazi Germany, where she gives birth to her daughter Anita Leocádia while incarcerated. Separated from her daughter, Olga is sent away to the Ravensbrück concentration camp, where she is executed in the gas chamber.
