How much soldier is still alive in me?, Sebastian Heinzel asks himself when he learns from the Wehrmacht archives that his grandfather fought in Russia during the Second World War. Grandpa Hans had never told his family about the mission.
New research shows that trauma can change our genetic make-up, affecting our families for generations to come. German filmmaker Sebastian Heinzel explores the effects of the World War II on his family. As he follows his grandfather's path from Germany to Belarus, he discovers unexpected connections to his own past and his war dreams, which have been haunting him for decades.
