One of the main conditions of the Holocaust was created by the negligent behaviour of the non-Jewish population in most European countries. It has enabled the Nazis to drag away and kill thousands of people in broad daylight. This film is about this apathy. Gunmen keep in check stigmatised people wearing Star of David in a busy street of a European capital in the 21st century and the bystanders are just watching it.
