A clever political thriller on a subject that haunts (not only) Munich to this day.
Munich, 2022: On the 50th anniversary of the attack on Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972, a commemorative ceremony is to be held alongside a friendly match between an Israeli and a German soccer club. Six days before the match, rumors of an impending attack spread and a race against time begins. The German authorities must cooperate closely with the Israelis to prevent history from repeating itself.
