Driving through Israel in a bus full of film students – a great opportunity. But Sarah’s attempts to learn more about the occupied territories and discuss the Palestinian conflict isolate her from the group. She starts a dialogue with her dead father instead, a Polish Jew who fled the anti-Semitic campaigns of the early 1970s and went to Sweden. The animated reflections are superimposed over the documentary images through which a journey into family history becomes visible.
