Director Marian Marzynski follows a Polish-American Holocaust survivor as he journeys back to his ancestral village in Bransk, Poland, from where thousands of Jews were sent to their deaths in concentration camps during World War II. When the survivor visits a Jewish cemetery and other haunting locales of his youth, he also encounters former gentile neighbors and confronts the still-potent legacy of that horrific era.
