***SPOILERS*** Sent back in time in a futurist time machine to April 1889 in the little town of Branuau on the Austrian German border Andrea Collins, Katherine Heigi, is determined to prevent a future world holocaust from happening. That's by her preventing a new born baby Adolph Hitler from reaching adulthood. Getting a job as a maid in the Alois Hitler, James Remar, household Andrea's job was to look after baby Hitler and when on one's around and the time presents itself suffocate him in his crib and thus change the course of history.

As we and Andrea see this isn't an easy task in that baby Hitler seems to have luck as well as history on his side. It's Hitler's mother Klara, Nancy Slvak, who put a lucky charm by her new born son's crib, a key, that seems to have supernatural powers that prevents any harm from happening to him. Also Andrea's maternal instincts kicks in with Baby Hitler who just couldn't stop crying who takes a child-like affection towards her far more then to his mother Klara as well as nursemaid or nanny Kristina, Jillian Fargey, miking it very difficult for her to kill him. In that Andrea sees Hitler , as a newborn child, not being the monster that he eventually turned out to be.

****SPOILERS**** Determined to kill Hitler as well as sacrificing herself, to prevent any guilt feelings on her part, in doing it Andrea slips out of the Hitler household with baby Hitler and together jumps to his and her death off a bridge over the river Inn. As history was to prove that didn't prevent the horrors of WWII from happening even with Hitler no longer around. In fact what Andrea did was set those events into motion by playing right into, without her knowing it, the events that lead to the horrors that she so desperately tried to prevent. And as we all were soon to see it wasn't the Adolph Hitler born to both Alois & Klara Hitler who was to be the one responsible for those horrors but in fact a victim of them..
