Eighty-year-old interpreter Ali Ungár comes across a book by a former SS officer, in which the author describes his wartime activities in Slovakia. Ali realises one of the passages probably recounts the execution of his parents. He sets out to visit the former SS-man living in Vienna. But instead of the murderer of his parents, Ali finds only the Nazi’s seventy-year-old son. Georg is a former teacher struggling with alcohol addiction, who had distanced from his father’s past throughout his entire life. However, Ali´s visit stirs his curiosity, and he decides to find out who exactly his father was. And thus the two old men – the ascetic Ali and the bon-vivant Georg – embark on a journey to find surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy.
