In the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp at the tail end of WWII, Jewish Hungarian Saul Ausländer works as a member of the camp'sSonderkommando unit, assigned to shepherd the constant stream of prisoners into the gas chambers and dispose of their bodies thereafter. When one young boy he retrieves from the chamber exhibits a brief flicker of life before dying, Saul is shaken out of his deadened state.
