A band of Romanian freedom fighters pull off the crime of the century in this gripping heist film based on an incredible true story. Bucharest, 1959: with anti-Semitism on the rise, a group of Jewish WWII resistance members, led by a police inspector and an academic, team up again for an audacious act of political agitation. Posing as a movie crew, they hold up the Romanian National Bank by making it look like a film shoot. But what comes next is even more unbelievable. Game of Thrones’ Harry Lloyd co-stars in this slyly comic satire ripped from the strange-but-true pages of history.
