80-year-old Ali Ungar comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia. He realises his parents were executed by him and sets out to take revenge but instead meets up with his 70-year-old son, Georg, a retired teacher. Georg, had avoided his father all his life, and decides to find out more about him. The two old men, in everything opposite, embark on a bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy. They discover a country eager to forget its past and realise their memories are fragments mixed with their own imagination and interpretation. Submitted as Slovakia’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar Contender (selection yet to be made). Starring Jiri Menzel & Peter Simonischek.
