Documentary about one man's experience of Nazi concentration camps and how creative endeavours help him deal with the evil he has experienced. Ben Altman always wanted to become a painter but circumstances in his early life did not allow him to pursue this dream. Trained as a tailor, when Ben was captured by the Nazis he was spared due to the useful nature of his skills. When the war ended he moved to San Francisco and set about earning a living through his work. It is here Ben began experimenting with paint and the pieces he creates are fragments of the memories he has of that period in his life.
