Synopsis
Peter Rohm is a young, ambitious and brilliant lawyer with impeccable principles. While researching a book on Josef "Angel of Death" Mengele, he is kidnapped and flown to Argentina where he meets a man who claims to be Mengele. He is given the chance to question him or to fly home. Outraged, Rohm chooses to fly home but is subsequently arrested on his flight back. Mengele is also on the same flight and claims that Rohm is his lawyer. Defending Mengele repulses Rohm, but the right to defense is one of the principles justice in built upon. Will defending Mengele sear his soul or will it become the only way to uncover the truth?
