In this documentary, director Amos Gitai turns the spotlight on an incident which took place between two skinheads and a man who asserted that he had Jewish blood. While Gitai makes every effort to develop a pattern of anti-Semitism from the incident, through interviewing townspeople, witnesses and prosecutors, reviewers found that the aggregate impression they received after viewing the film was that some not-too-intelligent and overly aggressive men had simply engaged in a drinking contest which turned nasty. Despite that, the film provides a clear sense of the social barriers and frustrations which many young Germans experience today.
