Based on the autobiography of Auschwitz commander Rudolf Hss.
In 1946, Rudolf Franz Ferdinand Hss, the longest serving commander of Auschwitz concentration camp, awaits his trial in a Polish prison.
Hss carried out the most efficient mass killing process ever known, which claimed the lives of approximately 1.1 million people.
Albert, a young and successful Polish investigation judge, is appointed to interrogate Hss and get a perfect confession out of him.
The encounter between the two men unveils the horror and torture that took place in the camp, and how its routine nature made the events appear banal to those working there.
The film is based on the Hsss memoirs, written before his execution.
