In an unnamed Eastern European capital, an iron-willed cardinal is arrested by state police on charges of treason. Tasked with securing a confession from him by any means necessary is a former comrade-in-arms from the anti-Nazi resistance. Knowing the cardinal will never fold under physical torture, the interrogator instead sets out to destroy him mentally, breaking his spirit rather than his body.
