In her mid-thirties, Anne still knows little of her family’s past. After her mother’s death, Anne discovers old photos and letters that convince her to take a closer look at her parents’ life after the concentration camps of World War II.
Her research reveals the a mysterious uncle everyone seems intent on forgetting. As she gets closer to the truth, her father grows ill and may take the family secret to his grave.
In a journey that stretches from post-war France and to the 1980s, Anne’s destiny intertwines with her father’s past until they form a single, unforgettable story.
