In the spring of 1945 as Nazi Germany collapses, the Swiss ambassador flees bombed-out Berlin after serving in the capital of the Reich. He went through the war, but will he survive the peace?

In Detail

In the spring of 1945 as Nazi Germany collapses, Swiss ambassador Heinrich Zwygart (Michael Neuenschwander) flees bombed-out Berlin after serving eight years in the capital of the Reich.

This is the end of an abominable mandate, during which he had to make fatal compromises to preserve the neutrality and security of his country. For Switzerland to end on the winning side after the war, someone will have to pay.

Haunted by his past, struggling to secure a future, but driven by his ambition, Zwygart feels the trap closing in on him.

Beautifully shot in black and white, with a tremendous central performance from Neuenschwander.

The cast also includes Manuela Biedermann, Cléa Eden, Yann Philipona and Sabine Timoteo.
