During Hitler's anniversary speech on November 8, 1939, a man is arrested on the Swiss border for possession of suspicious objects. Just minutes later, a bomb explodes in the Munich Brgerbrukeller, immediately behind the Fhrer's lectern, killing eight people. The man is Georg Elser, a carpenter from Knigsbronn in the Swabia region. When a map of the site of the assault and detonators are found on him, he is sent to the head of the Criminal Police in the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, Arthur Nebe and the head of the Gestapo, Heinrich Mller to be questioned. From them, Elser learns that his attempt has failed - that the man he wanted to kill in order to stop the bloodshed of the World War that had just begun, has left the Brgerbrukeller 13 minutes before the explosion. For days, Elser is interrogated by Nebe and Mller, for days, he holds out against their questions - he looks back at how National Socialism slowly metastasised in his home village. how he attempted to oppose it with his best friend Josef Schurr and how he had to turn away from those he loved because of his plans - until he finally confesses and relates the story of his deed.
