Graz, Austria 1963. The well respected local politician and land owner Franz Murer is on trial. He is accused of having committed war crimes in the ghetto of Vilnius from 1941-43. Survivors of the mass murder arrive to testify and see justice done. 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 political calculation.
