80-year-old Ali comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia and realizes his parents were executed by the author. Ali sets out to take revenge but instead finds Georg, his 70-year-old son, who had avoided his father all his life.  Georg decides to learn more about his father and offers Ali to be his interpreter. The two old men, in everything opposite, embark on a bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy.
