In a fashion of drama combined with a road movie, President of the Association of concentration camp survivors – stolen children, Prof. Dr Janez Žmavc takes us on a trip down memory lane. The film tells the story of the bitter, painful fate of 654 stolen children during and after World War II. Seven decades on, the sites of Germany's former children's concentration camps are the scene of an encounter between the then "banditenkinder" and "deutschekinder" – Slovenian and German children scarred by the Nazi ideology, victims and eyewitnesses of World War II, now elderly men and women of today's 21st century Europe. To repent and to forgive. The withheld and the painfully unspoken. A look in the eye and a shake of hands. As a memory and a reminder.
