Animation with live-action fragments about the American gangster Dutch Schultz. He talks about all sorts of things but refuses to reveal who shot him.
In 1935, the last words of the dying gangster Arthur Flegenheimer, alias Dutch Schultz, are registered by an FBI shorthand writer. He talks about all sorts of things but refuses to reveal who shot him. His stream of words is illustrated by animations based on old and new films, suggesting a glimpse inside Schultz's head. This flow of images is repeatedly interrupted by a live-action reconstruction of the killing.
