Eighty-year-old Slovak interpreter Ali Ungar wants to find out the circumstances of his parents’ death at the hands of a Nazi officer and perhaps exact revenge. The officer’s son Georg, who has spent his life avoiding his father and suffering from alcohol addiction, is not interested in helping, but the odd couple sets out on a road trip where endless stories of atrocities are more nuanced than either had imagined.
