At the end of the Second World War, Jacob Noah emerges from the forest, where he has been hiding. He goes to his Dutch hometown, Assen. His parents and brother have been taken away by the Nazis and their shop has become an Aryan bookshop. There, surrounded by Dutch nationalist books and posters of Teutonic heroes, Noah confronts the shop-owner, his head full of thoughts of revenge.
