Bettina Henkel embarks on an emotional journey; to process repressed trauma that has been handed down unknowingly from one generation to the next. As a grandchild of war, of a Baltic German man, she fathoms repressions; as a daughter, she asks her father; as a filmmaker, she digs in the archives. And she pushes forth ever deeper into the thicket of her family biography. A film about culture( s) of remembering and the heredity of wounds, which — as it says in the end — cannot be healed by time alone.
