Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Tom Hulce plays a Polish Jew who turns to the Dutch profiteer Theo (Jeroen Krabbe) for help to escape from the Nazis. Theo refuses to help the fugitive because he has no money, but the desperate visitor insists on staying. Theo risks his life by giving the man food and shelter. Hulce's character (who is never referred to as Shadowman) jumps into an Amsterdam canal and swims for his life while the Nazis try to gun him down.
