Director Christophe Cognet meticulously retraces the footsteps of some of the extraordinarily courageous men and women who risked their lives, while prisoners in WWII concentration camps, to secretly photograph the atrocities the Nazis were hiding from the world. In his quest to decipher the circumstances and stories behind each of those photographs, the director constructs a veritable archeology of the photographic image as an act of defiance.
