A tabloid newspaper is investigating the life of industrialist and state parliament member Heinz Alfred Giese, following a car accident that resulted in the death of his son Andreas. Although a case for negligent homicide was dropped due to evidence that Andreas had interfered with the steering wheel, Giese's driver's license was revoked, and he was sentenced to traffic lessons. Sensing a scandal, the tabloid delves into Giese's past.

The newspaper surveils Giese, documenting his activities such as a visit to the Natural History Museum with his grandson, rendezvous with his lover, and attendance at a class. They covertly follow him, photographing his movements, waiting outside his house, and even breaking in to steal a picture from his youth. Suspicions arise regarding Giese's involvement in the wartime liquidation of a Greek village. However, incriminating photos are inconclusive, leaving doubts about Giese's direct participation.

Despite lacking concrete evidence, the newspaper publishes an article insinuating Giese's connection to the massacre, sparking public outrage. Riots erupt outside Giese's company, with him being labeled a "murderer." Giese obtains a defamation injunction, but faces further scrutiny on a televised discussion where his silence is interpreted as guilt. The newspaper also suggests a link between Andreas' death and a potential dispute over Giese's past.

Returning home, Giese confides in his son Hubert, urging to leave the past behind and avoid being tainted by his family's history.
