Synopsis

German soldier Stefan Brandt is on a mission to investigate exiled German Monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II. The Kaiser lives in Huis Doorn, a secluded mansion just outside of Utretcht in the Netherlands, and as Germany is taking over Holland, the country’s authorities are concerned that Dutch spies may be watching the Kaiser. As Brandt begins to infiltrate the Kaiser’s life in search of clues, he finds himself drawn into an unexpected and passionate romance with Mieke, one of the Kaiser’s maids whom Brandt soon discovers is secretly Jewish. When Heinrich Himmler, Head of the SS, makes an unexpected visit with a large platoon of Nazis in tow, the stage is set for a showdown, as secrets are revealed, allegiances are tested, and Brandt is forced to make the ultimate choice between honoring his country and following his heart.
