During the final weeks of WWII the allied command instigates “Operation Rebecca”. The goal is to find and capture Adolf Hitler. “Operation Rebecca” consequently apprehends a number of middle-aged Berliners, whose appearance resembles Hitler’s. Those who can not show proper identification are sent to a special detention area – “Camp Rebecca”, where they are imprisoned until their identity can be confirmed.
