The lives of a young maid, a German officer, and German Monarch Kaiser Wilhelm II (played to perfection by Christopher Plummer) intertwine in this intriguing, romantic thriller. Loosely based on historical events, The Exception sees Wilhelm (exiled to the Netherlands since 1918) hosting Heinrich Himmler and hoping that the Nazi leader will welcome him back to Germany. But Winston Churchill sends a spy to convince the former monarch to seek asylum in England. Viewer discretion advised: Adult themes and nudity.
