In a world where the Nazis won World War II, Germany has corralled all European countries into a single state called "Germania", and continues fighting against the Soviet Union. It is now 1964 and Germany's war crimes against the Jews have so far been kept a secret. Germany believes that an alliance with the United States would finally beat the Soviet war machine. As his 75th birthday approaches, Adolf Hitler (Rudolph Fleischer) wants to talk peace with President Joseph Kennedy (Jan Kohout). An S.S. homicide detective and an American journalist stumble into a plot to destroy all evidence of the genocide; evidence that could destroy the peace process with America and evidence that Nazi and S.S. leaders will stop at nothing to keep hidden.
It's 1964. What if Hitler had won the war?
