The Scarlet and the Black

Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV
An Irish Vatican priest hides allied POWs from the Germans occupying Rome, during World War II. Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty is under threat from the Chief of the Gestapo who orders the priest captured or killed if he is seen outside the protection of the Vatican walls. The Pope tries to maintain the Vatican's neutrality, but warns the priest that there is nothing the church can do if he is caught. Assassins move inside the Vatican and there is an attempt on the priest's life. His days are numbered but in a suspenseful race against time, O'Flaherty battles to keep more than 4,000 refugees hidden around the city until Rome can be liberated from the Nazis.
