When her estranged father Moritz contacts her again after 7 years, it becomes an impetus for her to reconstruct her father's family history.  From here on a journey begins in which Sharon, tries to understand who her father is and who his parents were. After having survived the Holocaust her father's parents, who were originally from Poland arrived in Munich, in the American zone. They remained in Munich for the longest time.
