THE BARBER AND THE BOMB tells the story of a community in Cologne that was put under general suspicion after the nail bomb attack of June 2004. Eleven years after the attack and almost three years after uncovering the "National Socialist Underground" (NSU), the film explores the details of that crime and the failure of its investigation.
