Near the end of WWII, the vicious SS recruited every able man to fight on the front lines in an attempt to push back the allies and further eradicate the Jews. When Erich, a peaceful man and father of two, is recruited, tragic circumstances befall him and he is ordered to kill two Jewish children. Now he must decide between murdering the children or aiding in their escape, knowing that doing so will result in his own death. The short is Jamesʼs first attempt at a war drama, and the idea stemmed loosely from an experience his great uncle had while in captivity at Kistarcsa, Hungary.
