"A fitting tribute to some unsung heroes with bags of old-fashioned charm." —Daily Express

"An effortlessly entertaining homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood that packs a surprising emotional wallop."  —The Dispatch

During World War II, the Nazis steal countless pieces of art and hide them away. Some over-the-hill art scholars, historians, architects and other experts form a unit to retrieve as many of the stolen masterpieces as possible. The mission becomes even more urgent when the team learns about Hitler's "Nero Decree," which orders destruction of the artworks if the Third Reich falls. Caught in a race against time, the men risk their lives to protect some of humankind's greatest achievements.
