  • 1h 37m

After the death of his grandmother at the ripe old age of 98, Goldfinger embarks on a treasure hunt in the Tel Aviv flat she shared with his grandfather since fleeing Germany in the 1930s. Among the dusty books and old clothes, he uncovers a stack of Nazi newspapers and years of correspondence with an aristocratic German family who are so high up in the Nazi regime it seems almost impossible.

The discovery sets Goldfinger on an odyssey to reveal the truth about his family’s history while asking the uncomfortable questions that some would rather not be asked.
