Based on the true story of the Sobibór extermination camp uprising during WWII, led by POW Soviet officer Alexander Pechersky (Konstantin Khabenskiy). 'Sobibor' was one of four concentration camps in Poland and prisoners who arrived there were doomed for death. With the greatest odds against him, Alexander Pechersky managed to do the impossible - in only three weeks he organized a daring revolt, which aided the mass escape of Sobibor's condemned prisoners. Some of the escapees were caught and shot, but the rest escaped with Pechersky and joined the resistance to fight the Nazis. The mass escape was such an embarrassment to the Nazis that Himmler ordered the camp to be raised to the ground.
