Leading German actor Burghart Klaußner gives an electrifying performance as the German-Jewish prosecutor who defied his country to bring Adolf Eichmann to justice. Attorney General Fritz Bauer is committed to holding leaders of the Third Reich to account. He is stymied at every turn by authorities with Nazi ties, many of them former higher-ups under Hitler, now in top government positions. While slandered in the court of public opinion by foes seeking to silence him, the tenacious Bauer pursues a forbidden alliance with the Israeli spy agency Mossad to apprehend Holocaust mastermind Adolph Eichmann.
