THE COUNTERFEITERS is the true story of the largest counterfeiting operation in history, set up by the Nazis. Salomon “Sally” Sorowitsch is the king of counterfeiters. He lives a mischievous life of cards, booze, and women in Berlin during the Nazi-era. Suddenly his luck runs dry and being Jewish he is arrested by Superintendent Friedrich Herzog. Immediately thrown into the Mauthausen concentration camp, Salomen is picked for his unique skill and with a group of other prisoners he is forced to produce fake foreign currency under the program Operation Bernhard. Faced with a moral dilemma, Salomon must decide whether his actions, which could prolong the war and risk the lives of fellow prisoners, are ultimately the right ones.
