Imagine being a beloved actress and artist, performing around the world and receiving awards and praise for your talents. Then, a military coup happens in your home country, and your people struggle under a brutal regime. You use your platform to speak out and to seek justice, but the government does not approve–they strip you of your citizenship, and you are unable to return home. However, you continue to fight for what you believe is right.
This was the life of Melina Mercouri.
