It’s always unsettling for the viewer when the motivations of an antagonist seem equally as justifiable as those of the protagonist. Even more so when these are characters in a story based on World War 2 history – just with a different outcome.
Based on the book by Philip K Dick, this series
is set in an alternate reality in which the Axis
powers won decades ago and the US is under the
rule of Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany. After
she discovers footage showing an America in which the Allies won the war, a brave young
American woman, Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos
from The Chronicles of Riddick), goes on a mission to stop the Nazis from also conquering
parallel universes. To do so she embarks on a perilous journey to find the clues to a future that
Hitler (Wolf Muser) and his henchmen are determined to prevent anyone from knowing about.
