The film, penned by Justine Juel Gillmer (Into the Badlands), tells the true story of Irena Sendler, a Polish social worker, humanitarian and nurse in German-occupied Warsaw in World War II who served as a key figure in the Polish Underground movement in which she helped care for and saved over 2500 Jewish children from being put into concentration camps. After being suspected of helping the children by the Gestapo, she was arrested and put into a camp where she is tortured for information on the movement, creating a race against time to save her and the identities of those she’s helped.

“As producers, we want to help bring stories that have inspired us to life,” Gadot and Varsano said in a statement. “Pilot Wave will create content that promotes the perspectives and experiences of unique people and produce impactful stories aimed at igniting the imagination.”
