Bribery of the guards is one of the daily occurrences at a POW camp just outside of Berlin. But when Canadian Hugh bribes one guard to 'turn deaf' while he escapes, the guard takes the bribe and then tries to kill Hugh at the fence. A scuffle results in the guard falling on his own knife - luckily Hugh escapes but when the other guards find their mate dead, a nationwide search is on for the murderer.
In Berlin, Hugh (disguised as a discharged soldier with a fake wooden leg) meets Anna and of course this then turns into a romance tale, but quite a deadly one. Anna is on the enemy's side but when she finds out who Hugh is, rather than turn him in, she agrees to smuggle herself to neutral territory with him. From this point on the movie majorly picks up the pace and if you blink just once, you're liable to miss something very important! Very low-budget, but very tense and thrilling - 8/10.
