Plot Summary
Raoul Wallenberg (Stellan Skarsgard) is a mild-mannered, apolitical upper-class Swede. An importer of luxury foods from Hungary, he was directly responsible for saving thousands of Hungarian Jews from massacre by the Nazis; by installing them in safe houses using falsified Swedish papers, he was able to evacuate them safely in small groups. When he learns that an order has been given to kill the 65,000 Jews in the Budapest ghetto, he must race against time to save them.
