However, before the plans go ahead, on August 24th 1944 – the day before the Liberation of Paris – Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling (André Dussollier) enters the general’s office in the Hotel Meurice through a secret passageway and challenges him, stalling for time so the Allied forces can save the city.
