TIFF edition:

Magdalena Kopp was married to the most wanted terrorist in the world: Carlos "the Jackal". She followed him through the birth of international terrorism, of which he became the star. Driven by a need to belong, she found herself in the arms of the man who was fast becoming the first celebrity-terrorist in the world. For some Carlos is a revolutionary, to others a murderer, but for Magdalena he is a the father of her daughter, Rosa. While Carlos stands trial in Paris, mother and daughter take a courageous journey beyond the shadows of his myth.
