Summary:
At the dawn of World War II, a resistance group organized an incredible raid of masterpieces from the Louvre, lest they end up in the hands of the Nazis. Jacques Jaujard, the assistant director of the museum, conceived and executed this daring operation. Without his ingenuity and bravery, many of the museum's masterpieces on display today could have been forever lost. Combining interviews, rare footage, including Jaujard's notebook, and animated sequences tell the story of this unknown hero.
