- Synopsis / Plot
- In the last months of the Second World War, american administrative Lieutenant Hart (Colin Farrell) is captured by German forces during the Battle of the Bulge. Sent to a German Stalag Prison camp ruled by inmate american Col William A. McNamara (Bruce Willis), Hart is at once thrust into the social order of POWs, where every man thinks of himself first with bribery and trading with German captors commonplace. When two African American pilots become the first non-white soldiers in the camp, one is murdered and the other accused of killing a white sergeant. Lieutenant Hart must then defend the black pilot against charges before an obviously racist American tribunal; unaware that the trial itself is only a front for the real secret of the prison camp.
