The Dead : In Berlin, Germany, in the early 1930s, the acclaimed Swiss film director Emil Ní¤geli receives the assignment of a lifetime: travel to Japan and make a film to establish the dominance of Adolf Hitler's Nazi empire once and for all. But his handlers are unaware that Ní¤geli has colluded with the Jewish film critics to pursue an alternative objective - to create a monumental, modernist, allegorical spectacle to warn the world of the horror to come.

Meanwhile, in Japan, the film minister Masahiko Amakasu intends to counter Hollywood's growing influence and usher in a new golden age of Japanese cinema by exploiting his Swiss visitor. The arrival of Ní¤geli's film-star fiancée and a strangely thuggish, pistol-packing Charlie Chaplin - as well as the first stirrings of the winds of war - soon complicates both Amakasu's and Ní¤geli's plans, forcing them to face their demons . . . and their doom.
