Storyline

An in-depth look at the life of Polish actress Helena Modjeska, whose struggles to build a career as an independent female actor and businesswoman became a thing of art.Helena carved out a 30 year career as a stage actress, crossing cultures, classes and status as she performs in mining towns, Victorian opera houses and theaters across America. As a bi-national star, she discovers her own natural acting style, refining theater and redefining culture in America. Continually haunted by her visits to Poland, she transforms herself into the voice of Poland and the voice of women---the dignified, the fallen and the conflicted.Modjeska's extraordinary vision, creativity and drive were unstoppable.
