RESISTANCE relates the life and work of the world-famous pantomime Marcel Marceau, who saved the lives of thousands of Jewish orphans during the Second World War.
Marcel Marceau, son of Jewish parents, was born under the name Marcel Mangel. During the Holocaust, he learned the art of pantomime to help children escape in silence and survive. The story is inspired by true events that would shape the life of the legendary Marcel Marceau years before his world career as the greatest pantomime of all time.
