SynopsisGrandmother Gerda died at age 98. The family gathers in her flat in Tel Aviv where she has lived with grandfather Kurt for the last 70 years. Among countless letters, photographs and documents director Arnon Goldfinger uncovers traces of an unspoken past: the Jewish grandparents were close friends with SS-officer Leopold von Mildenstein and his wife.
The film develops into a story that holds unexpected international
interests, calls up restrained family emotions and discloses secrets. Together with his mother the filmmaker and grandson Arnon Goldfinger takes on the battle, like two Don Quixotes: against boxes, dust, salesmen and family members, past, present, repression and truth.
