Fact-based drama telling the story of Amer­i­can pro­ducer Mil­ton Frucht­man and black­listed doc­u­men­tary film-maker Leo Hur­witz, who over­came enor­mous ob­sta­cles to record the trial of Nazi war crim­i­nal Adolf Eich­mann, one of the ma­jor or­gan­is­ers of the Holo­caust. Footage of his trial in Jerusalem in 1961, was broad­cast in 37 coun­tries and was the first time sur­vivors had spo­ken about the hor­rors of the con­cen­tra­tion camps to a mass au­di­ence.
