Synopsis

Focusing on the family of a Nazi perpetrator sixty years after the end of the WW II, three generations argue about the family history as if it were a secret that cannot be aired. Hanns Elard Ludin--the filmmaker's father--found fame as a young officer during the Weimar Republic after having conspired on Hitler's behalf in the German army. When Hitler came to power, Ludin quickly rose to become a Nazi stormtrooper Obergruppenführer and, by the time he was twenty-eight, he had an army of no less than 300,000 stormtroopers under his command. Ludin enjoyed all the privileges of the Third Reich. In 1941, Hitler sent him as emissary to the Nazi's vassal state, Slovakia. His mission was to push Berlin's interests. Alongside the economic exploitation of this country as well as military cooperation, these interests included, the implementation of the Final Solution. After the war, Hanns Ludin was handed over to the Czechoslovakian authorities by the Americans and was sentenced to death.
