Chiune Sugihara is known as the “Schindler of Japan” for saving 6,000 Jewish people from the Holocaust. Diplomat Sugihara, a master of Russian language and intelligence, hopes to be posted in the Soviet Union but is sent to Lithuania instead. In 1939, Germany invades Poland and masses of Jewish refugees oppressed by the Nazis turn to Sugihara for visas. With no approval from the Japanese government, Sugihara decides to start issuing transit visas to the refugees, putting himself and his family in grave danger. This Japanese–Polish co-production is an epic telling of a powerful but little-known story of the Second World War.
