Summary
Documentary film that follows friends Jan Wiener and Arnošt Lustig on a trip to Europe in 1998. Holocaust survivors, Wiener and Lustig met in the United States, where both had fled from communist Czechoslovakia. The trip recreates the journey made by Wiener as he escaped from Nazi occupied Prague, through Slovenia and Italy, on his way to joining the British Royal Air Force before his return to Prague after World War II. Along the way their friendship is sorely tested by their very different perspectives on the past.
