In 1958 Frankfurt, young lawyer Johann Radmann (Alexander Fehling) discovers that certain prominent institutions and branches of government are entangled in a conspiracy to cover up the crimes of Nazis during World War II.
Johann works tirelessly alongside journalist Thomas Gnielka (André Szymanski) and Jewish concentration camp survivor Simon Kirsch (Johannes Krisch) to uncover the evidence linking thousands of SS soldiers — many of whom now have successful careers in the public service — to the atrocities committed at Auschwitz. As he gets more and more deeply involved in his research, Johann begins to wonder if his own family history is as honorable as he once thought.
