The successful Jewish director Cornfield returns from the USA to Germany in the 1980s. Here, 45 years ago, he had been one of 13 Jewish extras in an anti-Semitic propaganda film. In return, he and his friends were promised freedom. The promise was never kept, however, and out of fear the young Cornfield made a mistake that would haunt him for the rest of his life: he betrayed a friend and thus made himself complicit in his friend’s death. Plagued by his guilty conscience, Cornfield wants to make a documentary film about the circumstances of the events of that time and in this way atone for his guilt.
