This fascinating documentary tells the astonishing true story of Ruth Gruber, a woman unconstrained by gender or ethnicity who began life as a prodigy, graduating with a doctorate degree at age 20 (making her the youngest person in the world to have a phD), to crusader fighting for Jewish rights during WWII and reporter covering the fall of Germany, the Nuremberg trials, the Soviet Arctic and the formation of Israel. Still feisty and formidable at 96, Gruber sits for a series of interviews recounting her globe-spanning adventures.
