New York, 1939. Josef Kavalier has finally escaped from Prague to his cousin Sam Clay’s cramped bedroom. Together they embark on a journey, which starts with the comic strip ‘The Escapist’, in which a Nazi-busting superhero frees the oppressed around the world, but soon turns into a plan to rescue Josef’s family from Hitler’s tyranny.
