In 1933 Nuremberg, successful Jewish businessman Leo Katzenberger owns an apartment building and runs a shoe store. A devoted family man, Leo has a good relationship with his loving wife Claire. As the climate in Germany grows increasingly dangerous, bombshell Irene moves to the neighborhood. After forming an unlikely friendship, Leo's relationship with Irene is immediately regarded with suspicion. Leo's refusal to live his life in secrecy leads to trouble and before long he is arrested. Accused of having an affair with Irene, Leo is tried and executed by the German government.
