A dream becomes the trigger for a personal search for clues about the effects of the Second World War in the director's family. He follows the mysterious paths of his grandfathers from Northern Hesse to Russia, where they were both soldiers at the eastern frontline. Trying to learn more about their experiences during the war, he discovers unexpected connections to his own history. What at first appears to be far away from him suddenly moves up close and personal. Is there an invisible thread that has led him to Eastern Europe for years?
