While the world was at war for the second time, Germany had tasked an SS officer to help study hygeiene. Chemist Kurt Gerstein (played by Ulrich Tukur) develops a way to combat typhus but what he discovers is that his methods are being used to kill Jews in gas chambers at Nazi Death Camps. Struggling with the horrors that he witnesses while doing his work, Kurt Gerstein takes it upon himself to find help in the Vatican. His hopes are to get the help of the church and the Pope to stop the murders of millions of Jews but what he discovers is that the church and many others turn a blind eye to the horrors that are happening. With only a young priest to help him, Kurt risks everything to bring the truth out even when no one wants to believe or help him.
