The comedy-drama follows an army platoon, consisting of seven handpicked museum directors, curators, and art historians, whose mission is to enter Germany with the aid of allied forces, towards the end of WWII, to rescue priceless artwork stolen by the Nazis, and save it from damage or destruction.

The seven individuals are based on the true story of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, who as well as were tasked with retrieving stolen art, were also responsible for safeguarding cultural and historic monuments.
