This movie is a trip—back in time, that is, to the ‘80s. The premise is simple: two separate groups are meeting up at an abandoned warehouse under the cover of darkness to transact a weapons deal only it does not go as planned.

This plot sounds like a lot of other Nazi war movies, but the forgotten footnote in history this movie is based on happens to be true. It’s surprising these events are not more well documented, but probably only World War II buffs will remember the assassination of “The Butcher of Prague.”
