Frankfurt, 1946. David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) och hans judiska vänner har överlevt kriget och nazismen och drömmer om att resa till Amerika. Men hur ska de få råd till resan i dessa hårda efterkrigstider? Bermann kommer på en idé: att sälja fina sängkläder till uttråkade hemmafruar, perfekt paketerade med en underhållande historia. Han och hans talangfulla vänner går nu från hus till hus och uppvaktar damerna med vackra ord tills de rodnande inte kan stå emot de eftertraktade varorna. Affärerna blomstrar och en ny ljus framtid skådar i horisonten. Men så dyker frågor om Bermanns förflutna upp till ytan. Varför har han två pass? Varför har han vistats vid Hitlers sommarhus i bergen. Kan han ha samarbetat med nazisterna? [ForlagEtt]
