Based on a true story, EXTREME NUMBER is the story of a young refugee from Chechnya who comes to Germany in 2004 and is thrown into prison in Berlin. He enlists the help of a translator to escape. He then joins a terrorist group in Berlin that gives him a very special order. Authentic war documentation is embedded in the film as the Chechen protagonist’s flashbacks. This is real coverage of war, shot by a Chechen rebel from 1996-2000 in Chechnya. Real and fictional levels of the story blend together as a whole.
