famous actress who is on friendly terms with Nazi officers during the German occupation of Greece in World War II uses her connections to save friends and strangers from the clutches of the regime. But she pays with her life when she is shot down by a Leftist paramilitary organization.
The Woman Who Died Twice portrays a complex and highly contradictory character in a blend of historical fact and fictional fantasy, where the heroine escapes her assailants and lives on under an assumed identity.
There are echoes of detective fiction when a character who has given the actress a home conducts extensive research into her life, uncovering many little-known aspects of it.
An atmosphere of mystery pervades this depiction of a harsh era where lives are needlessly sacrificed. Many dark situations are cleared up only at the last moment in an eventful plot that offers successive surprises and reversals.
