It’s Tuesday, and Disney+ subscribers around the world, including in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland, have two brand new episodes of the new drama series, “A Small Light” to enjoy. The new episodes are also available on Hulu.

Based on an inspiring true story, Miep Gies (Bel Powley) was young, carefree and opinionated — at a time when opinions got you killed ― when Otto Frank (Liev Schreiber) asked her to help hide his family from the Nazis during WWII. Without hesitation, Miep agreed. For the next two years, she and her daring and devoted husband, Jan (Joe Cole), with several other everyday heroes, watched over the Frank, van Pels and Pfeffer families hiding in the secret annex.

Told with a modern sensibility, “A Small Light” shakes the cobwebs off history and makes Miep’s story feel relevant, forcing audiences to ask themselves what they would have done in Miep’s shoes; and in modern times, asking if they would have the courage to stand up to hatred. Some stood by; Miep stood up.

Here are some details on these episodes:

Episode 3 – Motherland

Laws against Jews are intensifying, landing two small children in Miep and Jan’s care, strengthening Jan’s ties to the resistance and bringing up Miep’s issues with her past abandonment.

Episode 4 – The Butterfly

Miep tries to reconcile her old life with her new one but is forced to choose between her morals and her lifelong best friend while trying to bring some form of holiday cheer to the lives of those in the annex.

“A Small Light” is produced by ABC Signature and Keshet Studios for National Geographic. Executive producers and writers Joan Rater and Tony Phelan (ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” CBS’ “Fire Country”) serve as showrunners, DGA Award-winner and Emmy-nominated executive producer Susanna Fogel (“The Flight Attendant,” “Cat Person”) directs multiple episodes, including the pilot, and William Harper executive-produces. For Keshet Studios executive producers are Peter Traugott and Lisa Roos, Alon Shtruzman for Keshet International, and Avi Nir for Keshet Media Group.

The first two episodes of “A Small Light” are available to stream now on Disney+ and Hulu.
