Andrej lives in Frankfurt. A phone call leads him back to the place of his childhood, to his father’s house. A hand-held camera provides an almost continuous shot of a visit to his childhood home, which becomes an uncertain search for his roots. We learn about the past through his verbal exchanges with a former female classmate, but even more is revealed through the unspoken – gestures, conversation lulls. A film about directness that is absorbing yet subtle.
