Auschwitz-Birkenau, 1944: In the perfectly organized system of the concentration camp, so-called "Sonderkommandos" consisting of Jewish prisoners usher their fellow inmates into the gas chambers. They are forced to lead their fellow sufferers to death for small privileges in their everyday life. This wins them a little more time before they too fall victim to the camp commandant Muhsfeldt’s killing machine. Given this certainty and the excruciating burden of complicity, they plan an armed rebellion in total secrecy – the only one in the history of Auschwitz.
