Set in the chaotic final weeks of World War II in Germany, The Captain is based on a shocking true story. As a young soldier fleeing military police after abandoning his post, Willi Herold stumbles onto a Nazi captain’s uniform…and wears it to avoid execution. But while disguised and high on the terrifying charisma of his clothing, he invents a secret mission from the Führer and embarks on a brutal odyssey that will earn him the nickname of "The Executioner of Emsland".
