Bar-owner Rick (Bogart) must choose between his love for Elsa (Bergman) and the need for her and her husband, Czech Resistance leader Victor (Paul Henreid), to escape back to Europe and continue the struggle against the Nazis.

The screening will be preceded and followed by the recording of the Best Pick Podcast.
