A docudrama feature film that tells the extraordinary story of Luiz de Souza Dantas. As Brazilian ambassador to France during the Second World War, he saved over a thousand people whose lives were under the Nazi threat, mostly Jews, by granting them highly irregular diplomatic visas from the Brazilian government so that they could leave war-torn Europe.
