1934: From June 29 to July 2, Hitler achieved a wave of killings within his own camp, and even eliminated his only real friend, the SA emblematic leader Ernst Röhm.
What led him to make such decisions? And how did those murderous nights unfold?
Through the historical reconstruction of the three nights that marked Hitler’s final steps to absolute power, this film sheds light on a major turning point in the history of Nazi Germany, documenting how events unfolded, with the help of historians, archive footage and motion graphic design.
