Dr. Braun is forbidden to practice medicine, because he's a Jew living in Nazi-occupied Bohemia and Moravia. He's old, seems resigned to the Jews' fate, and even works for a governmental department, which confiscates Jewish property. One day, a neighbor asks him to assist a wounded political fugitive. Dr. Braun reluctantly operates to remove a bullet, but warns that plenty of morphine will soon be needed to keep the man from screaming when he awakens. After some soul searching, Dr. Braun decides to redeem himself and reclaim his identify as a person and a doctor by continuing to provide assistance. His search for the scarce morphine takes him on a nightmarish journey which includes a brothel, where local women are forced to be prostitutes for German soldiers; a bar where the locals try to drown their misery in booze and dancing; and a Jewish insane asylum with a high suicide rate.
