A legal drama based on real events: in 1963, Franz Murer, officer of the SS, stood before the court for his crimes.

This film presents a reconstruction of the 1963 trial of Franz Murer, the Butcher of Vilnius, a member of the SS during the war who, in the 1960s, became a politician and respected citizen. Murer – The Anatomy of a Trial transforms from a legal drama to a story of manipulating truth, of memories, of behind-the-scenes political gambits and of the (in)ability to forgive the sins of the past.
