Brief synopsis

Im August 1938 schliesst die Schweiz ihre Grenze für jüdische Flüchtlinge – ein Todesurteil. Doch nicht alle Beamten halten sich an die unmenschliche Weisung. Paul Grüninger nützt bürokratische Lücken und setzt aus moralischer Überzeugung alles auf Spiel. Paul Grüninger (1891-1972) wird zu Recht als „Oscar Schindler“ im Grenzgebiet zwischen Deutschland und der Schweiz in die Geschichte eingehen: Er rettet 2000 Menschen das Leben.
