If something is not impossible, then there must be a way to do it… Sir Nicholas Winton 1909-2015

Based on the book If It’s Not Impossible …The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton by Barbara Winton, One Life tells the incredible, emotional true story of Nicholas “Nicky” Winton, a young London broker who visits Prague in December, 1938. In a race against time, Winton convinces Trevor Chadwick and Doreen Warriner of the British Committee for Refugees in Czechoslovakia to rescue hundreds of predominantly Jewish children before Nazi occupation closes the borders. Fifty years later, Nicky (Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety. It’s not until a BBC show reintroduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried — all while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero.
