Graz, Austria 1963. The well respected local politician and landowner Franz Murer is on trial. He is accused of having committed several homicides and war crimes in the ghetto of Vilnius from 1941-43. Survivors of the Holocaust arrive to testify. The Ministry of Justice eventually reaches a decision. It is one of the greatest scandals of the Austrian justice system – and a timeless, shattering example of politival calculation.
