PG 10/18/1974 (US) DramaThriller 2h 10m

Hamburg, Germany. 1963. Peter Miller is going inside the dreaded Odessa. More than a few people hope he doesn't get out... ever.


Following the suicide of an elderly Jewish man, investigative journalist Peter Miller sets out to hunt down an SS Captain and former concentration camp commander. In doing so he discovers that, despite allegations of war crimes, the former commander has become a man of importance in industry in post-war Germany, protected from prosecution by a powerful organisation of former SS members called Odessa.
