Based on true-life World War II events, the film follows a small crew of art historians, curators and average soldiers who were given the near-impossible task of running around Europe—during the battles following D-Day in 1945—to find and recover artworks that had been stolen, looted and hidden by the Nazis. As well, the so-called monuments men helped locals to protect statues and other precious works from the bombs and bullets flying around.
