In 1957, the Hessian attorney general Fritz Bauer receives crucial evidence on the whereabouts of SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann. The lieutenant colonel, responsible for the mass deportation of the Jews, is allegedly hiding in Buenos Aires. Bauer, himself Jewish, tries to take crimes from the Third Reich to court, ever since he returned from Danish exile. So far, without success, due of the fi erce German determination to repress its sinister past. Because of his distrust in the German justice system, Fritz Bauer contacts the Israeli secret service Mossad, and by doing so, commits treason. Bauer is not bend on revenge for the holocaust - he is concerned with the German future.
