When Jewish songstress Fania Fénelon (Vanessa Redgrave) is plucked from the stage and sent to Auschwitz, she and other musicians find themselves assigned to a terrible task: using their talents to soothe fellow prisoners who are sentenced to die in the gas chambers. Daniel Mann directs this Emmy-winning television movie based on Fénelon's autobiography; famed playwright Arthur Miller penned the script.
