Synopsis

Made-for-TV drama based on the life of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat credited with saving the lives of tens of thousands of Jews in World War II. Wallenberg (Richard Chamberlain), an architect and businessman from a wealthy Swedish family, initially underestimates the Nazi regime, but as their power grows in Germany and beyond, the Swede becomes increasingly concerned at their barbarity. Posted to Nazi-occupied Budapest as Sweden's special envoy, Wallenberg feels himself morally obliged to help those in need and puts himself at great risk to shelter countless Jews in danger of persecution.
