in addition to female cast women dominate the movie behind the camera as well and the director is the costume designer and all are women.
Also Sarah Megan Thomas is the producer and actress in all three positions.
Even Lillie Rebecca McDonough composed the music for the film.
Sarah Megan Thomas has written the screenplay after years of researching historical records. She also met with family and friends of Virginia Hall to play her role.
Radhika Apte also went on to study character-related novels for the role of Noor Inayat Khan. she also saw spy movies for a better Play.

The British were almost Disappointed, but the women, who were not overly suspected by the Nazis, became involved in espionage so that they could infiltrate and spy on intelligence.
Everyone knows that the Soviets were very interested in espionage, as well as teaching espionage to women.
But it is less well known that Britain had spies, including women, on a smaller scale. in the original trailer we see women are trained after being selected
The film was well received by the audience at the festival And there are good reviews from critics. here are some of which we will take a look at.
A Call to Spy seems to be focusing on the characters instead of events, which is always welcome.
“It’s rare to find a war movie with one complex female character – let alone three, as in A CALL TO SPY. Lydia Dean Pilcher and Sarah Megan Thomas have beautifully crafted the true story of real women who confronted hatred in World War II, and we’re thrilled to bring their film the attention it deserves.”
Pilcher has said that what has caught his attention for the film is the multicultural power and unity of women. which has received less attention in history.
“These three women, driven by the stakes of humanity, had a choice to collaborate, do nothing, or resist. Their stories are more relevant today than ever” said Pilcher.
Early in World War II, with Britain becoming increasingly desperate, Winston Churchill instructed the new spy agency, SOE, to recruit women and train them for espionage and sabotage.
