A team of American historians and museum directors must recover pieces of art pilfered by the Nazis during World War II and return them to their rightful owners.
Inspired by a true story, The Monuments Men tells the tale of an American World War II platoon tasked by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt with rescuing valuable art masterpieces from the grips of the Nazis and returning them to their rightful owners as the conflict draws to a close. Comprised of museum directors, curators, and historians far more intimately acquainted with fine art than the brutal nuances of war, the unlikely team might fight against long odds brought about in large part by Reich orders to destroy everything on their inevitable way out the door of power if they are to succeed at their objective.
