In the 60s, in Belgium, Michel and his brother Charly live a happy childhood in their Jewish family, while their silent and discreet father, Henri Kichka, refuses to reveal his past. The two brothers imagine him as a great adventurer, pirate, or treasure hunter….but what is he hiding? Unwilling to share his traumatic history of survival in Auschwitz; this is the story of Henri’s children, and their journey to understanding their father’s past. A heartrending yet deeply uplifting tale of remembrance, love and the triumph of the human spirit.
