Amsterdam movie: Plot
Amsterdam is set in the 1930s and revolves around three best friends: a doctor with a glass eye and an attorney who both served as soldiers, and a nurse. The three made a pact to "protect each other no matter what". This vow came in handy when the trio became the prime suspects in a murder and find themselves entangled in "one of the most shocking secret plots in American history".
It's reported that the story is based on true events and the official trailer also teases that majority of the plotlines "actually happened". However, it's not yet clear which event in history is being referenced in the movie.
