During Hitler's anniversary speech on November 8, 1939, a man is arrested on the Swiss border for possession of suspicious objects. Just minutes later, a bomb explodes in the Munich Bürgerbräukeller, immediately behind the Führer's lectern, killing eight people. The man is Georg Elser, a carpenter from Königsbronn in the Swabia region. When a map of the site of the assault and detonators are found on him, he is sent to Arthur Nebe, the Head of the Criminal Police in the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, and to Heinrich Müller, the Head of the Gestapo, to be questioned.

From them, Elser learns that his attempt has failed – that the man he wanted to kill in order to stop the bloodshed of the World War that had just begun, has left the Bürgerbräukeller 13 MINUTES before the explosion. For days, Elser is interrogated by Nebe and Müller. For days, he holds out against their questions. Until he finally confesses – and relates the story of his deed.

"13 MINUTES is an elegant, expensive-looking, respectful history lesson that finds just enough interesting texture in terms of the religious, social, moral, and personal circumstances that led to the creation of this rogue ideologue, to save it from becoming dry."
Jessica Kiang - THE PLAYLIST

"A psychological portrait of resistance, made all the more timely - and creepily, almost offensively, unsettling - given the current political climate in the United States."
Michael O'Sullivan - WASHINGTON POST

"13 MINUTES is proof that a hero isn't about having success against impossible odds; it's about doing the right thing when everyone else on the planet is doing something else."
Oliver Jones - NEW YORK OBSERVER

" A genuine achievement on an inexhaustible subject."
Glenn Kenny - ROGEREBERT.COM
