On Adolf Hitler's orders, General Dietrich von Choltitz (Niels Arestrup) is due to destroy many of the city's famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

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.
