Daas is a period drama that depicts the timeless struggle between religion and secular authority, idealism and duplicity, eroticism and faith. Daas explores the influence of 18th-century messiah claimant Jacob Frank. Claiming powers of mystical healing and prophecy, Frank promises immortality to his converts. Henryk Klein, a Viennese lawyer investigates Frank, and starts to believe that there has been a conspiracy formed that involves some of the most influential people in the Austrian Empire. Meanwhile, a minor nobleman Jakub Goliński, Frank’s long-time disciple who left his sect is seeking justice. Once a devoted believer, he now takes action against his former guru.
