The testimony of a former Wehrmacht soldier through excerpts from home movies he made in the 50s, found by his grandson, the author of the present film. A reflection on the banality of evil, the psychology of the masses and the conditioning of individuals as seen through the eyes of a young man disconcerted by the history of his family and its ambiguous relationship to the past.
