Part thriller, part psychological drama, The Mascot tells the remarkable true story of how Alex Kurzem unravelled the shocking secrets of his wartime past. With the support of Mark, his son, Alex began to recall how he evaded the German-led execution squad that decimated his village, but witnessed the murder of his Jewish mother and siblings. He fended for himself before falling into the hands of a Latvian police battalion and becoming their mascot.
