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.

  • 5 stars "Absolutely spell-binding. I would absolutely recommend this movie as a documentary that we had very little knowledge of. Well acted and well directed. The actors were absolutely believable"
  • 4 stars "I saw this film at TIFF in 2015 and I'm very happy to see that it has a release date. Based on a little known part of the aftermath of the Holocaust in Germany, it is well-acted and directed. Overall, a very interesting story. I look forward to seeing it again."
