Arthur Goldman is an immensely wealthy
Jewish tycoon living in New York. Suffering from a persecution complex, he is suddenly kidnapped by Israeli agents and accused of being a former war criminal. In a bizarre trial Goldman - or is he mass-murderer Adolf Dorff? - conducts his own defence dressed in Nazi uniform. The complicated unravellings are as much an examination of his psyche as of the dreadful happenings in concentration camps.
