Occupied Hungary 1944. Hans (Kenny Doughty) and Ingrid Vassman (Caroline Carver) are the perfect Aryan couple. Young, married, in love and expecting their first child, they work as valet and maid for an elderly Jewish couple, Joseph (Martin Landau) and Rachel Krauzenberg (Judy Parfitt), in their magnificent palace in the Hungarian Countryside.
They have everything to look forward to - or so they would have you believe. Hitler's 'Final Solution' is sweeping through Europe. Himmler (Danny Web), the Fuhrer's second-in-command, has instigated 'The Europe Plan', offering rich Jewish families the chance to emigrate and avoid the concentration camp - and certain death - in exchange for everything they own.
The wealthy Krauzenbergs, desperate to save their family, make a deal but the Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler has decided to visit them in person and a detailed security check is to take place on all employees. Trouble is that Vassman and Ingrid are not Aryan at all, but Jewish and working for the local resistance...
