Expired 3.0 13 x
Based on a true story, this documentary film portrays the dramatic liberation of the “special prisoners” of the Nazi regime that were forced by the SS to the Alps and considered to be “bargaining chips” to the Allies. Amongst them were aristocrats, politicians, industrialists and their families. The last weeks of WWII are unforgettable for everyone, but particularly for those who were involved in this traumatic story.
