Summary
This film dramatizes the bizarre but true story of Saloman 'Solly' Perel, a Jew who avoided the concentration camps and certain death by hiding in plain sight. After Kristallnacht, his family flees to Poland, but soon after Solly has lost his brother and is alone, living by luck and wits. Solly finds himself in a series of adventures: in a Russian orphanage, captured by a German unit, celebrated as a hero, and sent in triumph to a Hitler Youth School. Although born on the same day as the Führer, Solly is circumcised and so must avoid intimate encounters. He fends off both a homosexual Nazi and a beautiful, virulently anti-Semitic girlfriend who's dying to conceive an Aryan child for the Fatherland. Despite some narrow escapes, Solly thrives through the chaos, as it seems a higher power is keeping an eye on him
