Aging German man Heinz Alfred Geise is a successful business owner whose past is quite haunting; during World War II he helped orchestrate a Nazi-led bloodbath in a small Greek village. When this secret is exposed in a newspaper article, it causes his son, Andreas, to try to kill both his father and himself, but this attempted murder-suicide only results in Andreas' death. Alfred then tries to cope with the tremendous guilt he is left with.
