A barber wounded during the First World War returns home after 20 years within hospital walls.

Hynkel, the tyrannical dictator, and his henchmen persecute the barber, as well as the rest of the Jewish community, including the beautiful Hannah…A visionary satire that marked history, just as history itself left its mark on the film.
