On December 21, 1975 six terrorists from the «Revolutionary Cells», forced their way into the conference room of the OPEC headquarters in Vienna and took 70 ministers as hostages. A gun battle ensued, and three people were killed. One terrorist was seriously wounded. The terrorists escaped to Algiers with a few hostages and the wounded man. There the hostages were released. The wounded terrorist was Hans-Joachim Klein. In Hans-Joachim Klein: My Life as a Terrorist the former terrorist looks back on the life he has led for the first time. The documentary shows how personal events in the life of an individual can lead to radicalism and terrorism. Alexander Oey portrays Klein's daily life as a farmer in the Normandy countryside while Klein tells his life story. He also accompanied the former terrorist on a trip to Germany, where Klein meets with old friends and allies such as Member of the European Parliament Daniel Cohn-Bendit. Can they remember the moment when a divergence of opinions arose between those who became radical and those who decided to remain on a straight path?
