The plot is that of a family man choosing to walk away from all his worldly possessions for the sole (soul) purpose of NOT joining the Nazis. He follows his moral compass firmly, refusing to take part on any level in hurting the innocent, and without a moment's hesitation treks off with his family into an unknown future with nothing but his family and the clothes on their backs.
This movie offers us an opportunity to examine what it would take for us, the viewer, to do the same thing if we ever found ourselves in a situation where our jobs depended on us looking the other way or enabling a predator to harm the innocent for selfish purposes. It's something you really have to prepare for. More and more, we see in the new these days, the teams of enablers that support predators who get away with "murder" for decades before anyone has the balls to blow a whistle...i don't get it.
This is just a movie. The true story is quite different. But still a Great movie and it's also great to see, in the news, so many people standing up for themselves and others who are not able to defend themselves. Let's hope it continues.
....and if YOU are the predator or enabler- stop today and make it the first day of the rest of your life. Peope will support your selfless change.
I believe there was a manufacturing problem in making this Blue Ray DVD.
