Based on the astonishing true story of Pvt. Willi Herold, a teenage deserter from the German army whose sadism would eventually earn him the nickname of the Executioner of Emsland, The Captain picks up two weeks before the end of the war.

A petrified Herold, fleeing military police, finds a Nazi captain’s uniform to wear and avoid execution. Thus disguised, he soon rallies a ragtag band of brothers whose unquestioning acceptance of his command emboldens him. High on the terrifying charisma of his clothing, he invents a secret mission from the Führer and embarks
on a brutal odyssey of torture and slaughter.

Directed by Robert Schwentke (The Time Travelers Wife, Flight Plan, Red, Insurgent). Starring Max Hubacher, Milan Peschel and Frederick Lau.
