follows Willi Herold (Max Hubacher), a German army deserter who stumbles across an abandoned Nazi captain\’s uniform during the last, desperate weeks of the Third Reich. Newly emboldened by the allure of a suit that he stole only to stay warm, Willi discovers that many Germans will follow the leader, whosoever that happens to be. A parade of fresh atrocities follow in the self-declared captain\’s wake, and serve as a profound reminder of the consequences of social conformity and untrammeled political power. Simultaneously a historical docudrama, a tar-black comedy, and a sociological treatise, presents fascism as a pathetic pyramid scheme, a system to be gamed by the most unscrupulous and hollow-souled.
