In Taking Sides, we witness the interrogation of the renowned conductor , Wilhelm Furtwangler and an examination of his behavior during the Nazi era.  Since he was allowed to remain as the leader of the Berlin Philharmonic throughout the war, he is under suspicion as a Nazi sympathizer.   Furtwangler remains passionate in his defense that he survived as a protector and comforter of the German people and an artist on watch over the cultural life of his homeland.
