A project which would be realized in all its destructive horror more than 50 years later by the 9/11 terrorists. Hitler was convinced that this would have a devastating psychological impact on the American superpower and with this plan, the National Socialist regime hoped to turn the tide of the war, which ahd been fraught with defeats and setbacks for them since the decisive year of 1943. Hitler understood the enormous symbolic power of Manhattan's skyscrapers. He considered New York as the "centre of the capitalist Jewish world conspiracy" and wanted to destroy it.
Eye witnesses, archive material and original construction plans show how the destructive fantasy, and its monstrous product the "America Bomber", turned into a collective indiscriminate desire for destruction. Finally, the film shows how the United States learned about Hitler's secret plans and reacted.
