Crime thriller based on the life of Andries ‘Al Capone’ Riphagen: boxer, black marketeer, pimp, but especially ardent Jew hunter, who amassed an immense fortune in World War II by tracking down, blackmailing and betraying Jews in hiding. He believes he is untouchable, until a young policeman from the resistance launches a dogged hunt for him. Will the cunning, unscrupulous Riphagen have a lucky escape after all?
