Film Summary: Upon learning that many former Nazis returned to their pre-war lives with no penalty, an ambitious German prosecutor (Alexander Fehling) vows to bring them to justice. Frankfurt 1958: nobody wants to look back to the time of the National Socialist regime. Young public prosecutor Johann Radmann comes across some documents that help initiate the trial against some members of the SS who served in Auschwitz. But both the horrors of the past and the hostility shown towards his work bring Johann close to a meltdown. It is nearly impossible for him to find his way through this maze; everybody seems to have been involved or guilty.
Johann Radmann is a young and idealistic public prosecutor who takes an interest in one man’s accusations against Charles Schulz, a former Aushwitz extermination camp commander, who is now teaching at a school in Berlin. Radmann is determined to bring Schulz to justice, but he finds his efforts frustrated because many former Nazis serve in the government, and they look out for each other. His tenacious pursuit leads him down a path that forces an entire country to face the truth.
