NY 1960. When the world-famous philosopher Hannah Arendt hears about the capture of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Eichmann, she decides to travel to Jerusalem to report on his trial for ‘The New Yorker’. Her friends warn her to stay but she wants to confront herself with the past, having survived a concentration camp herself. When she publishes her articles and coins the term ‘banality of evil’, a global outcry of indignation is the result. Most of the world sees Eichmann as a monster and is appalled at Arendt’s unemotional approach and interpretation of history. Her life, name and reputation are under threat.
