Synopsis

War drama directed by Niki Stein and starring Ulrich Tukur. In the summer of 1944 the tide of the Second World War has turned against Nazi Germany and they must prepare for the Allied attack in what will long be remembered as the D-Day landings. The man responsible for the German defences on the French coastline is none other than Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, the infamous 'Desert Fox', but his immediate superiors do not share Rommel's ideas for planning the defence. When the Allies eventually attack, Rommel is proven right in his belief that Normandy was their intended target but this will not be enough to regain control of the war. As the war effort begins to fall apart so too does Rommel's place in the Nazi hierarchy when he is caught up in a conspiracy to overthrow the Fuhrer.
