Mandagsfilmen 3. June is One Life.

One Life tells the true story of Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved more than 600 children from the Nazis during World War II. Nicky considered himself an ordinary businessman, but he had a rude awakening from his safe life when he visited newly occupied Prague in 1938. There, he witnessed how fleeing Jews were treated, and therefore he did what he believed was the only right thing to do: everything in his power to help. With the war looming, it became a race against time. How many children could he rescue before it was too late?

In 1988, 50 years later, Nicky is still haunted by the fate of the children he couldn't save. It wasn't until he was surprised on live television by the survivors that he could accept that in the face of such horrors, saving just one life is a victory.

James Hawes has previously directed a number of award-winning TV series and films, including Black Mirror, Enid, and The Challenger Disaster, and has now assembled a star-studded cast for the film One Life.

The cast includes Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, The Two Popes, The Remains of the Day, The Father), Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter series, Fight Club, The King's Speech, Alice in Wonderland ), and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes, Tomorrow Never Dies, The Crown, and Brazil).
