Occupied Hungary, 1944. Hans and Ingrid Vassman are the perfect Aryan couple. Young, married, in love and expecting their first child, they work as valet and maid for a benevolent elderly Jewish couple, the Krauzenbergs, in their magnificent palace in the Hungarian Countryside. While Hitler’s ‘Final Solution’ is now ficercely sweeping through Europe, Himmler, the Fuhrer’s second-in-command, has secretly instigated ‘The Europa Plan’, offering rich Jewish families the final chance to escape and avoid certain death by paying to Himmler everything they own. The wealthy Krauzenbergs, desperate to save their family, have no alternative but to make a deal with Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler, promising him their fortune in exchange for a safe passage for their family and themselves to Palestine. All goes as planned until they are joined at a farewell dinner by ‘the devil himself’, none other than Adolph Eichmann. Meanwhile, a detailed security check of Krauzenberg employees reveal a deep secret Hans and Ingrid have kept hidden for years. The tension on the screen lasts up to the final moments!

The company established a reputation for making and promoting daring break-through films and for giving important career starts, working with many of the world’s leading directors. Amongst these are James Cameron, Oliver Stone, Bernardo Bertolucci, Mick Jackson, Martin Campbell, Michael Apted, Robert Altman, John Schlesinger and many other notable directors such as Ken Loach, Harold Becker, Gillian Armstrong, Tim Hunter and James Foley. Daly’s films have grossed in excess of 1 billion dollars. Daly’s films have achieved twenty-one Oscar nominations, thirteen Oscars and won unprecedented back-to-back Best Picture Oscars for "Platoon" and "The Last Emperor".
