An uncompromising Holocaust researcher uncovers a long-buried secret that casts doubt on his family history. Meticulous in his quest for the truth, deeply religious historian Yoel Halberstam (Ori Pfeffer) is sustained by his faith and work, toiling in the basement of the Holocaust Institute in Jerusalem. Investigating the cover-up of a wartime massacre of Jews on the outskirts of an Austrian village, he stumbles upon highly classified evidence. With his personal and professional life at stake, Yoel secretly pursues the lead, risking everything.
