In 2014, Europe remembered the outbreak of the First World War. The fateful war, which raged for four years and cost 12 million lives, began a century ago in 1914. The catalyst of the disaster was the murder of the Austrian successor to the throne, Franz Ferdinand, and his wife Sophie on June 28, 1914 in Sarajevo. This astonishing documentary conveys the dramatic events on the eve of the First World War. The last day of Franz Ferdinand and his wife is meticulously reconstructed for the first time. The film shows the course of the day leading up to the assassination practically minute by minute. The most recent research and artifacts provide the building blocks for this elaborate and exciting production. While the film follows the course of the day, flashbacks of the life of Franz Ferdinand are shown in a combination of one-of-a-kind historical recordings and newly filmed re-enactments.
