Having spent a lifetime concealing his Jewish identity, an aging German Holocaust survivor struggles to reconcile his past. With no synagogue, Jewish friends or family, the hardened old man has so effectively created a new identity that, when faced with his own mortality, he finds the rabbis refusing his appeal to be buried in a Jewish cemetery. Determined to return to his birthplace to establish his ancestry, Marcus enlists the help of a brash, troubled Turkish woman. The unlikely duo sets out on an unforgettable road trip.
