Dany, the daughter of a Free French soldier, lived through the occupation and liberation of France during World War II. She is wearing a dress sewn from the parachute of a U.S. Paratrooper, who helped free her town of Sainte-Marie-Du-Mont in Normandy, France June 6, 1944 (D-Day). And since June 6, 1945, Dany has helped to celebrate and thank America and its WWII Veterans.
The Girl Who Wore Freedom reminds Americans and the world of how America is perceived when she is at her best: when she values people over politics, seeks to right wrongs of injustice, and sacrifices, when necessary, so others might be free. The film is a timely reminder to do as the French say ... "Never forget" ... Never forget what we can be when we are true to our deepest values.
