Synopsis

Daniel (Ash Newman), an arrogant, restless young Londoner is bored with his meaningless life. He seeks sympathy from his old Jewish grandmother, who sends him on a mission to Europe to find the grave of her father who disappeared during World War II.

Following his grandfather's trail, Daniel's journey leads him to Paris, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, and Sofia, finally having to flee to Rome.

As he passes from one intense experience to the next, he is caught up in the turmoil of change taking place in the former communist countries in the process discovering his Jewish roots, which had preciously never mattered to him.

What started as an excuse simply to travel and have fun soon becomes and obsessive quest and a journey of personal discovery.

Filmed in black and white. Original score by Jerome Levy.
