Saul is a Hungarian prisoner worker in the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp. We follow two days in his life - the Sonderkommando leads people to their death, but on this day he takes a young boy, who nearly survived the ordeal, as his own son.

Schliesslich nimmt er ihre Wertsachen an sich und entsorgt die "Teile", die Reste ihrer Körper. In einem Kind, das das Zyk...
