Synopsis / Plot
Harry Harras is a renowned general in the Luftwaffe during World War II. His expertise in turning out top-notch planes has made him a legend in Germany. However, he finds himself caught between two extremes: on the one hand he has earned the enmity of fanatic SS officials because he is by no means a Nazi, and on the other hand he finds himself being used, albeit unwillingly, as a symbol for those Germans resisting the Nazi regime.
