A smooth-talking salesman in postwar Frankfurt, who barely survived the concentration camps, plans to leave for America, but his shady past comes back to haunt him in this German comedy-drama.

Frankfurt, 1946. David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) and his friends have escaped the Nazi regime and are now dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough post-war times?

The smooth-talking businessman focuses on what the Germans now need most: fine bed linens nicely wrapped in amusing stories! The six talented entertainers go from home to home, praising housewives with chutzpah until the flattered ladies have no choice but to buy their irresistible items. Business flourishes and a bright new future can be seen on the horizon. But questions about Bermann‘s past catch up with him. Why does he have two passports? What about his visit to Hitler‘s mountain retreat? Could he have collaborated with the Nazis?

The smart and attractive but uncompromising US officer Sara Simon (Antje Traue) refuses to close the interrogation. She wants to get to the heart of Bermann‘s wartime memories. Sara matches his quick wit with iron severity, but it becomes increasingly difficult for her to escape his charm…
