In the darkest days of World War II, a group of Jewish fugitives attempts to escape from occupied Holland—only to face a Nazi ambush. Rachel Stein (Carice van Houten) survives the attack and joins the Dutch Resistance to avenge her family. She soon confronts the ultimate test: she must infiltrate German headquarters by tempting Captain Ludwig Müntze (Sebastian Koch). Unable to trust anyone, Rachel navigates a minefield of deception and becomes an enemy to both sides. Epic, passionate, and breathtaking, Paul Verhoeven’s complex thriller brings to life a world where the distinctions between good and evil are invariably blurred by the complexities of human nature and the turbulent events of a perilous historical moment.
