A must for anybody who enjoyed The Lives of Others, this
is a gripping intelligent thriller based on the life of master forger, playboy and charismatic rogue Salomon Sorowitsch.
In 1936, the Nazis set up the largest counterfeiting operation ever to flood the British and American economies with fake currency. They enlisted concentration camp inmates who had to participate if they wanted to survive, but who were prepared to risk their lives to sabotage the Nazi war effort.
