Director Nico Hoffmann combines black and white with color photography in this plodding drama starring Karl-Heinz Liebezeit in a dual role. When a Nazi war veteran commits suicide, his son investigates his father's wartime activities. The son discovers his father ran a slave labor camp in Poland during the war. The man killed himself in 1972 after learning his questionable war activities would be published in a German newspaper. The war years are depicted in black and white as the son's search continues in color. The theme is a familiar one of German's searching for historical truth and dealing with the collective national guilt in the aftermath of World War II.
