Attack on Leningrad

Aka 'Leningrad'. A soaring, action-packed journey of heroism and sacrifice as one crusading journalist desperately fights to uncover the horrors buried within the infamous Nazi siege of Leningrad in the savage winter of 1941. Reporter Kate Davis (Mira Sorvino) is trapped within the devastated city of Leningrad, separated from her lover (Gabriel Byrne) and alone in the war-torn streets.
