Tali embarks on an intimate journey to Lodz, Poland, to retrace her personal roots and collective national memory. At the heart of this journey are her two Polish loves: her expatriate lover Magda, who films the trip, and her late grandmother Silvia, a Holocaust survivor whose voice and memories accompany the couple on their quest. As they wander the streets of Lodz looking for long-forgotten street names, visit the ghetto where Silvia spent her youth, and search for a nearly buried tombstone, Tali and Magda discover surprising similarities in their shared Polish heritage.
This documentary explores how memories of the Holocaust and war come to life, narrated and passed down the generations by women.
