The Fuehrer’s Headquarter, December 1944. Berlin has been heavily bombed and the war seems to be lost. But Goebbels doesn’t give in so easily. His plan: On New Year’s Eve the Fuehrer is going to mobilize the masses again with a mighty and forceful speech. Re-staging of reality! But here’s the rub: The Fuehrer can’t do it, he is ill and depressed, avoiding the public. Only one person can help – Hitler’s former drama teacher, Professor Adolf Gruenbaum. But he is a Jew... However, time is short, in five days the Fuehrer has to be in top form...
