Switzerland 1942. The war seems far away in the small Swiss town of Payerne. A group of Nazi sympathizers want to do something special to commemorate Adolf Hitler’s upcoming birthday. They decide to select and kill a Jewish citizen as a scapegoat for the “sins of Israel.” The citizen they choose is a well-known livestock dealer, Arthur Bloch. At a local cattle festival, the extremists lure Bloch into a barn under the pretence of selling him a cow. They kill him and dismember his body. The crime is witnessed by a local boy who grows up to write a book about the incident.
