Inspired by a true story, following the heroic lives of a world leader and a young man swept up in the horrors of WWII.
As the war reaches its climax, Germany begins to doubt the loyalties of the Hungarian leadership - in particular Regent Horthy (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley). The Regent tries to navigate his country between the growing terror of Nazi Germany and the oppressive threat of communist Russia. He is ultimately faced with ceding power to another political party or accepting the execution of his son. As the crisis unfolds, thousands of his citizens are forced underground or put into ghettos. One of them is a young man named who is separated from his family and determined to find them. Aided by the woman he loves (Hannah Tointon), Elek disguises himself as a Nazi SS officer uncovers more than just his family whereabouts.
