On April 18, 1945, when the German city of Leipzig was liberated from the Nazis by American Divisions, the photographer Robert Capa took several pictures in an apartment. The series was published in Life Magazine and became famously known as the „Last Man to Die“.
From Capa’s point of view and with original sounds, this film reconstructs the last minutes of U.S. soldier Raymond J. Bowman's life just before he was shot and subsequently photographed by Capa.
