As a group of male Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz concentration camp wait to discover their faith of either hard labour or death, they decide to put God on trial. The charge is that God has broken the covenant made with the Jewish people by allowing the Nazis to commit genocide. The prisoners put forward their arguments and fundamental questions are raised concerning religion, morality and the purpose of human existence. The journey to a verdict leads us through the Jewish faith and the personal experiences of the prisoners: reason and emotion collide.
