Elderly Ali Ungar comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia, including the execution of Ungar’s parents. He sets out to take revenge on the SS officer, but instead finds his son, Georg, a retired teacher. Georg, who avoided his father his whole life, decides to find out more about him and requests that Ali be his interpreter. The two men are polar opposites, but they embark on a bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy. This road trip dramedy is full of surprising detours and emotional road blocks on its one-way journey that may or may not lead to a dead-end. Cast: Peter Simonischek, Jirí Menzel (Austria/Slovakia, 2018, 113 min., Drama)
