Anna and Adam, a young Jewish Parisian couple, decide to take their honeymoon in Poland, where they’ll attend a commemoration for the Jews in the village where Adam’s grandfather was born. While he’s reluctant about the trip, Anna’s glad for the chance to reconnect with her roots, visit the place her grandmother grew up, and hopefully uncover more about her own family’s mysterious history. As their surroundings force them to confront the past, their romantic holiday puts their relationship to the test—will their differing attitudes pull them apart, or draw them closer together?
