It’s a hot summer day in 2005.
Denis, a respected orthopaedic surgeon, has to attend an important meeting in his home village. His task is to protect his mother and unmarried sister from claims on their property made by Gita Lauschmannova, the daughter of its original German owners.
Denis sees Gita as the daughter of a German who collaborated with the Nazis, whereas she sees Denis and the rest of the villagers as descendants of those who stole from her family and attempted to murder her upon her unexpected return from the concentration camp.
She was sixteen, Jewish in the eyes of the Germans and German in the eyes of the Czechs. The road to undoing the wrongs done in the past will be winding and full of unpleasant surprises.
