“Extraordinary… a bracingly rigorous examination of inherited guilt and pain.” – Screen Daily

Internationally-renowned human rights barrister Philippe Sands QC goes on a road trip with two sons of SS officers, to find out if they can admit to their fathers’ crimes. When they arrive in the Ukrainian town where Sands’ own family were killed, the three men are forced to confront history in a unique way. An intellectually-charged and deeply moving exploration of history, confrontation and family.
