Uprising January 18, 1943. Nazi troops again sweep into the Warsaw Ghetto for a mission they've carried out many times before: gather Jews for deportation to the Treblinka death camp. But this time is different. Armed men and women of the Jewish Fighting Organization slip into the crowd of deportees. When the signal is given, they turn upon their oppressors and strike a bold blow for freedom.

Uprising is a remarkable story remarkably told, the stirring tale of people and events involved in the largest campaign of armed Jewish resistance to Nazi terror during World War II. Jon Avnet directs, bringing a brisk semi-documentary style to this film starring Leelee Sobieski, Hank Azaria, David Schwimmer, and other top talents. In a precarious world, in a terrifying time, ordinary people took upon themselves the extraordinary task of defying evil. Their legacy remains one of history's most inspiring stories.
