80-year-old Ali Ungar comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia. He realizes his parents were executed by him.

Georg, who had avoided his father all his life, decides to find out more about him and offers Ali to be his interpreter. A bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of a wartime tragedy.
