While Joseph Piller (Bang), a Dutch Jew, was fighting in the Resistance during the Second World War, the witty, debonair aesthete, Han van Meegeren (Pearce) was hosting hedonistic soirées and selling Dutch art treasures to Hermann Goring and other top Nazis. Following the war, Piller becomes an investigator assigned the task of identifying and redistributing stolen art, resulting in the flamboyant van Meegeren being accused of collaboration — a crime punishable by death. But, despite mounting evidence, Piller, with the aid of his assistant (Krieps), becomes increasingly convinced of Han's innocence and finds himself in the unlikely position of fighting to save his life.


Pendant que Joseph Piller, un juif hollandais, combattait au sein de la Résistance au cours de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, Han van Meegeren, un libertin débonnaire et plein d’esprit, était l’hôte de grandes soirées et vendait des trésors artistiques à de hauts gradés nazis, dont Hermann Goring. Après la guerre, Piller devient enquêteur. Sa principale tâche: identifier et redistribuer les œuvres d’art volées. Le flamboyant van Meegeren est alors accusé de collaboration, un crime passible de la peine de mort. Toutefois, malgré les preuves qui s’accumulent, Piller et son assistante, Minna Holberg, sont de plus en plus convaincus de son innocence. L’enquêteur tente de lui sauver la vie.
