This World War Two thriller is based on the true story of Operation Anthropoid. With their mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the third in command after Hitler and Himmler, two Czechoslovakian soldiers Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis are parachuted into their German-occupied homeland.
To help with their operation they are assigned Marie and Lenka as ‘partners’ for their cover story. They have very little resources or intelligence with which to plan and undertake the assassination assignment. As the Germans close in around them they begin to realise the enormity of the vital mission they have been tasked with undertaking.
