SYNOPSIS:

A documentary about conquest. "Attaining the unattainable." About the life of an artist missionary. About a woman who dared to be the woman she wanted to be. The American journey of the 19th century iconic Polish actress Helena Modjeska as she builds her own persona one step at a time and how she refined theatre and redefined American culture along the way. Her earliest impressions, influences, conflicts and desires as she leaves her war-torn Poland to become the voice of Poland and the voice of women. A journey about faith and compassion. The film was produced in celebration of the life of Helena Modjeska on the 100th anniversary of her death in 2009.
