During the final days of World War Two, 21 year-old German army deserter Willi Herold desperately attempts to escape a Nazi troop who are determined to find and execute him. While fleeing, he stumbles upon a seemingly abandoned Nazi uniform belonging to a high-ranking official, and decides to don the outfit simply to stay warm. But when he later comes across other members of the Third Reich, the uniform alone not only proves enough for them to accept him as one of their own, but sees them automatically defer to his orders. When Willi is given charge of a prisoner-of-war camp, however, his new-found status brings with it power which threatens to corrupt. Shot in black and white, this is an unforgiving true story which explores the psychology surrounding conformity, leadership and identity within the horrors of war.
The horror of the Holocaust is brought sensitively to life in this harrowing but essential true story of one man's struggle to survive.
