The Losing Role

In the last winter of World War II a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join a desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan—he’ll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he’d once abandoned.

The Losing Role is based on an actual German false flag operation during 1944's Battle of the Bulge that’s been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.
