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.

"Jan Wiener, 77, professor and wilderness guide. Arnošt Lustig, 72, professor and author. Jan Wiener escaped from Nazi occupied Prague at the age of 19, beginning a six-year exodus through Yugoslavia and Italy. He ended the war as a flyer for the Royal Air Force in England. Arnošt Lustig spent his adolescence in Nazi concentration camps. He survived to become an acclaimed Czech novelist, screenwriter and journalist. Jan and Arnošt left Czechoslovakia as exiles from the Communist regime. They met in the U.S. in 1978, and their mutual background inspired a close friendship. In the summer of 1998, we accompanied Jan as he retraced the steps of his escape through Europe. Arnošt, long interested in writing a story based on Jan's life, was invited to join us on the journey."--Title screens [...]
