This documentary reveals the conflicting aims of U.S. foreign policy in the Cold War era by exploring the life of German SS Officer Klaus Barbie. Barbie's war crimes in World War II earned him the name "the Butcher of Lyon," yet he was one of several high-ranking officers who received protection from the U.S. and other western powers after the war. Barbie fled to Bolivia, where he advised anti-communist dictators and provided key intelligence on East German officials for the U.S.
