    • Synopsis
    • 1932. New York. It is the time of the great depression, life is hard and not much hope lies on the horizon, German-American born Samuel Wolff, a New York steel worker with a love for arts and amateur boxing, is struggling like most. Seeking a better life for himself, Samuel decides to volunteer for the US army. The army immediately sees the perfect role for him, that of a double agent who is about to infiltrate the German SS.
      1938. Samuel, now a spy stationed in Sachsenhausen, Germany, poses as a cameraman for the Nazis, he soon discovers through his lens the brutal and evil agenda being carried out at the concentration camps that are going up around the country. Alone and feeling abandoned with little to no communication with his contact, he manages to find a ray of light within the dark gray sky of what his life has become; love with a woman named Eva Weiss, a jewish prisoner of war.
      Unable to continue witnessing the horrors, faced with the notion of an improbable romance and now torn with his loyalty towards his job as an operative for the United States, Samuel will have to make the ultimate decision: plan an escape for the family of the one he loves or sacrifice it all and perhaps even his life to save something of even greater importance? The film he captured would serve as the proof needed for his country to go to war againsts the evil army and open the world’s eyes.
