Synopsis:
Amsterdam, summer 1942. Walter Süskind (Jeroen Spitzenberger) can count himself lucky that he's found a job with the Jewish Council, which offers him and his family protection from deportation to Germany. One night, Walter witnesses the arrest of a Jewish family. The couple's children Roosje (Madelief Blank) and Simon (Ralph Moerman) manage to escape, but how will they survive in the occupied city? It is Süskind's task to arrange for the Jewish detainees to be sent to work in Germany. However, when he discovers the truth that it is the death camps waiting for his fellow Jews, he decides to double-cross the Germans.
As a part of his new plan, he befriends a high-ranking SS officer, Aus der Fünten (Karl Markovics) and also gains the support and cooperation of the underground movement. With other co-conspirators, he devises cunning ways to help save many children from certain death. Many of his own people see him as a Nazi collaborator unaware of the huge risk he faces. The lives of Walter, his wife Hanna (Nyncke Beekhuyzen) and child are now endangered when the SS officer begins to suspect that Walter is not the trustworthy manager he seems to be. The SS officer has become attached to Walter and prefers to believe that Walter is really his friend. However, when his superiors convince him that Süskind is the brains behind this operation, the German officer explodes and feeling betrayed, he plans to take revenge on Süskind and his family. Can Süskind find a way to protect himself, his wife and daughter and escape the wrath of the SS Officer. An incredible true story of courage.
