Bruno (Max Mauff), a young German entomology student, arrives in Israel with a letter from his recently deceased mother to Avi, a German-Jewish kibbutznik, who Bruno believes to be his biological father, Albert. Initially hesitant, Albert (Rami Heuberger) soon reveals the dramatic circumstances leading to Bruno’s birth just after World War II. In flashback, the film, then, follows Albert (Christian Friedel) desperately trying to hide from the Nazis in the Black Forest, as he is taken in by Fritz (Hans-Jochen Wagner), a brutish, hardworking peasant. Working together on Fritz’s farm, a friendship forms, and the childless Fritz makes a shocking request of Albert: to conceive an heir with his wife, Emma (Brigitte Hobmeier).
