In 1947 a young man gets off a train in a small Swedish town. He has survived the Lodz ghetto, Auschwitz, and the slave camps and transports during the final months of Nazi Germany. Now he has to learn to live with his memories. Göran Rosenberg returns to his own childhood in order to tell his father's story. It is also the story of the chasm that soon opens between the world of the child, suffused with the optimism, progress and collective oblivion of post-war Sweden, and the world of the father, haunted by the shadows of the past.
