The film portrays Hannah Arendt during the four years (1960-1964) that she observes, writes, and endures the furious reception of her work about the trial of the Nazi war criminal, Adolf Eichmann in Israel.

Watching Arendt as she attends the trial, staying by her side as she is both barraged by her critics and supported by a tight band of loyal friends, we experience the intensity of this powerful Jewish woman who fled Nazi Germany in 1933. With Barbara Sukowa as Hannah Arendt.
