A personal voyage becomes a journey into the history of 20th century Germany. A Glasgow woman unexpectedly inherits an old house in Berlin from her Jewish great-uncle. She goes to inspect the property, finding it in dilapidated condition, and makes friends with two of the tenants, who help her investigate the complex history of the building. In a relaxed and fluid style that effortlessly mixes fiction and non-fiction, director Cynthia Beatt provides a complex yet lucid and compelling account of personal pathways intersecting with great forces of history.
