In Thirties Berlin, Max (Clive Owen) and Rudy (Brian Webber) are lovers. But the Nazis have decided that homosexuals should be persecuted as well as Jews and, when a group of soldiers burst in on Greta's Club (run by Mick Jagger), Rudy and Max are lucky to escape. They are eventually caught and are due to be tramsported to Dachau concentration camp when Rudy betrays Max in return for a yellow star (he thinks that being Jewish is preferable to being seen as gay). Rudy is tortured and then thrown off the train and on arrival, Max attempts to befriend fellow prisoner Horst (Lothaire Bluteau); which leads to him coming to terms with his identity.

He is at odds with his wealthy family because of his homosexuality. One evening, much to the resentment of his boyfriend, Rudy, Max brings home a handsome SA man. Unfortunately, he does so on the Night of the Long Knives, when Hitler ordered the assassination of upper echelon SA corps. The Sturmabteilung man is discovered and killed by SS men in Max and Rudy's apartment, and the two have to flee Berlin. Max's Uncle Freddie has organized new papers for Max, but Max refuses to leave his boyfriend behind. As a result, Max and Rudy are found and arrested by the Gestapo and put on a train headed for Dachau. On the train, Rudy is brutally beaten to death by the guards. As Rudy calls out to Max when he is taken away, Max lies to the guards, denying he is gay. In the camp, Max falls in love with Horst, who shows him the dignity that lies in acknowledging one's beliefs.
