Adalbert Lallier is a man haunted by his connection to the most infamous group of mass murderers of the 20th century, the Nazi SS. Today Lallier wrestles with the demons in his soul. Having witnessed the murder of seven concentration camp prisoners during World War II, he is called on to testify at a war cimes tribunal 55 years later. How do we judge him? How does he judge himself? Structured as a whodunit thriller, Once a Nazi is fundamentally a tragic story. Lallier is still trying to solicit forgiveness from a Quebec society that is both repelled and fascinated by his alleged complicity.
