Invincible is the true story of a young Jewish blacksmith from East Poland, Zishe Breitbart, who at the beginning of the 1930s is lured to the world of the varietés in Berlin. In the dubious House of the Occult run by Erik Jan Hanussen, he plays the strongest man in the world, much to the displeasure of the rising Nazi establishment. Zishe's story ends tragically due to his strong belief that he was sent as the new Samson and must protect his people.
