    April, 1945, The Third Reich are losing ground during the final months of World War II, fascist dictator Mussolini (Steiger) flees the wrath of his own people and heads for Switzerland with his mistress, Claretta Petacci. Hunted by both the Americans led by Jack Donati, and the partisans, Mussolini is swiftly captured by the freedom fighters and held prisoner on the shores of Lake Como.
