Based on true events of the investigations that lead to the Frankfurt Auschwitz trials in the 1960ies that eventually tackled the murders and sentenced Nazi criminals to prison.

Frankfurt 1958: nobody wants to look back to the time of the Nazi regime. Young prosecuting attorney Johann Radmann comes across some documents that help to initiate the trial against some members of the SS who served in Auschwitz. But both the horrors of the past and the hostility against his work bring Johann to the point of meltdown. It is nearly impossible for him to find his way through this maze; everybody seems to have been involved or guilty.
