This is a political picture about the great Bulgarian revolutionary Georgi Dimitrov - one of the leading figures in the international struggle against Nazism. He gained world during the Reichstag Fire Trial in 1933, where trumped-up charges of having set the Reichstag on fire were brought against him. At the trial the valiant Dimitrov exposed the machinations of the Nazis and turned from a defendant into an accuser. Central to the story is the face-to-face political duel between Dimitrov and Goering. Extensive documentary evidence has been used in the film whose title is widely popular quote from Goethe, which Dimitrov used in the speech he made in his own defense. Dimitrov's contacts with ordinary Germans, the memories of his wife and comrade Lyuba Ivoshevich who died young, and the meetings with his mother Parashkeva alternate with documentary shooting scenes from the time of Nazi Germany.
