During Hitler's anniversary speech on Nov 8, 1939, carpenter Georg Elser (Christian Friedel) is arrested on the Swiss border. Just minutes later, a bomb explodes in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller, immediately behind the Führer's lectern, killing eight people. When a map of the site of the assault and detonators are found on him, he is sent to the head of the head of the Gestapo to be questioned. There, Elser learns that his attempt has failed—that the man he wanted to kill in order to stop the bloodshed of the World War that had just begun, has left the Bürgerbräukeller 13 minutes before the explosion.

“A psychological portrait of resistance, made all the more timely—and creepily, almost offensively, unsettling—given the current political climate in the United States.” —Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

“...A superbly acted and strikingly evocative work, with careful attention to period detail and its many emotional beats… A must-watch.” —Dan Gunderman, New York Daily News
