Drama. 2017. Greece. Directed by Pantelis Voulgaris. 117 minutes.
Greek with English subtitles.
Napoleon Soukatzidis (Andreas Konstantinou) is an inmate of the Nazi’s Chaidari concentration camp,
and interpreter for its ‘Kommondant’, Karl Fischer (André Hennicke). When news reaches Chaidari that a
Greek resistance ambush in Laconia claimed the life of a high-ranking German official and his escorts, Fischer
orders 200 inmates be executed. One of those inmates is Soukatzidis.
But then, on Labour Day, 1944, Fischer offers Soukatzidis both an opportunity and a conundrum: he can nominate another prisoner to take his place, and thus be spared death. Inspired by true events.
