Amsterdam, summer 1942. Walter Süskind can count himself lucky that he's found a job with the Jewish Council, which offers him and his family protection from deportation to Germany. It is Süskind's task to arrange for the detainees to be sent to work in Germany. When he discovers what is really awaiting his fellow Jews, he decides to double-cross the Germans. He befriends a high-ranking SS officer, Aus der Funten, while cooperating with the underground movement. But the lives of Walter and his family are endangered when Aus der Funten begins to suspect that Walter is not the trustworthy manager he seems to be. The SS man has become attached to Walter and prefers to believe that Walter is really his friend. When his superiors convince him that Süskind is the brain behind this operation, Aus der Funten explodes. Deeply hurt and feeling betrayed, he takes revenge on the only person in Amsterdam he feels close to.
