Ray Muller's documentary about filmstar turned filmmaker, Leni Riefenstahl (at the age of 100) takes a journey through her past, which includes: being admired by Adolf Hitler; making the infamous documentary 'Triumph of the Will' about the Fuhrer; making the documentary 'Olympia' about the 1936 Olympics held in Germany; her career after the fall of Hitler; and her current underwater photography. Riefenstahl is confronted by Muller as to why she became associated with Hitler and he goes on to examine why she is both hated and loved as a filmmaker.
