Austria, 1945. True story. At her castle in Rechnitz, Countess Margit von Battyany and her lover Hans Joachim Oldenberg host a party for SS officers, where the guests open fire on 180 Jewish prisoners. When the war ends, almost nobody is willing to talk about it. Two that do speak are found dead shortly thereafter.
