Herbert Cukurs is an officer in the Latvian Air Force and his country's most celebrated pilot. But after the Nazi invasion, he earns the nickname The Hangman of Riga after joining forces with the fascists, and is responsible for the extermination of 30,000 Latvian Jews.
Twenty years later, Cukurs is living quietly in Sao Paolo, Brazil. That is, until the Nazi-hunting unit of the Israeli secret service tracks him down. Will their master plan ensnare the greedy and paranoid Cukurs?
And can a cunning spy kill Cukurs before Cukurs sees through his disguise? This documentary is like Netflix for history. Watch to see how spies work and operate.
