The film reveals the motivations and political maneuvers that accompanied the complex restitution and compensation agreements – known also by the German term Wiedergutmachung (making amends) – between Germany, Israel and the Jewish world. In testimonies, often charged with emotion, victims, former government officials, and lawyers tell this unique story from the perspectives of the various parties involved.
