A man in Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia works as a cremator of dead bodies. He believes he is doing the souls of the dead a favor because of his beliefs in Tibetan religion. A Nazi convinces the man he has German blood in him and that his wife and children are Jewish. By now the man has been completely duped in the racist Nazi dogma. He goes insane and kills his wife and son, but his daughter manages to escape. The man believes he can save the souls of the world by turning it into one big crematorium in this disturbing story of further Nazi atrocities.
