The thrilling story of Operation Greenup, the most successful intelligence-gathering OSS operation of World War II. Two young Jewish-American refugees—one from Germany, the other from Holland—team up with a conscientious deserter from the Austrian Wehrmacht, parachuting one perilous night into the Austrian Alps. Despite incredible dangers and the eventual capture of daring mission leader Fred Mayer, their efforts bring about the surrender of Nazi-controlled Innsbruck, Austria to Allied Forces. Nominated for three Canada Screen Awards. (Canada, 2012, 52 min., Documentary Feature)
