THE ROMMEL GAMBIT

THE ROMMEL GAMBIT is a story about the French Resistance shortly before D-Day. The central character is a female resistance fighter with great emotional depth.

Featuring a lengthy account and depiction of the infamous Vel d’Hiv Roundup, THE ROMMEL GAMBIT is inspired by true events.

LOGLINE: In early 1944, an American officer lands behind enemy lines in Normandy and risks his life to plant false intelligence to convince the SS that Erwin Rommel, in charge of Nazi defenses against the upcoming D-Day invasion, is a traitor—relying on the help of a beautiful French Resistance fighter, who herself may be in league with Nazis.
