SUMMARY

The unknown story of Johanna Langefeld, chief SS-guard of Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Ravensbrück, who escaped in 1946 from prison in Krakow, where she waited for trial.
Her escape was organized by her former victims - Polish prisoners of the Ravensbrück concentration camp.
Why did Polish survivors of Ravensbrück helped an SS-woman avoid death sentence?
The filmmakers explore circumstances of this escape, to find out who Johanna Langefeld was and why Polish women decided to give her freedom. This Polish-German investigation leads to surprising discoveries about the heroes of the story as well as the historical circumstances.
