Based on a true story, Valkyrie is the story of a conspiracy among German military leaders to assassinate and depose Adolf Hitler as it begins to become obvious that the Nazis will lose World World II. The man in charge of the plan, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, must not only figure out how to kill the evil dictator, but also how to make sure his group of conspirators can take control of Germany afterwards. The plan proves to be much more difficult to execute than planned, however, and ultimately, it ends failing.
