The setting is the concentration camp of Auschwitz, Poland during the autumn of 1944. This picture describes the moral conflicts of Doctor Miklos Nyisli, a Jewish doctor chosen by Mengele in order to perform autopsies on the gassed victims. It also describes the efforts of the Sonderkommandos of the camp to organize an armed action against their captors. These Sonderkommandos are made up of Jews who have work in the crematoriums in exchange for better conditions of living during a limited period.
