The title of the film refers to the place and time when Jewish prisoners in the Sobibór extermination camp staged a successful uprising-- the only one-- against their Nazi captors, resulting in the closing of the camp. Comprised of extensive, detailed questions and answers with Yehuda Lerner who describes in minute detail the story of the rebellion and his previous almost miraculous escapes from no less than eight camps. Interview footage is juxtaposed with shots of Warsaw, Minsk and Sobibor today. At the end, Lanzmann reads a terrifying list of the number of Jews transported to Sobibor in 1942 and 1943.
