We’re showcasing some true stories on The Mommy Avenger this week, like 12 Strong (check out our giveaway!) and The 15:17 to Paris out on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital now.  However, this movie takes the true story one step further by having the true life heroes play their own roles in the film!

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris—an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.
