    • Synopsis
    • 92-year-old Eduard Leander, a former German Wehrmacht officer, has never talked about his wartime experiences, despite the dark shadows they cast over his family. His granddaughter Adele can't stand the bitter old man. When Eduard's wife dies, his daughter tries to put him in a rest home. But instead, he sets off to find Svetlana, the woman he fell in love with during the war when he fought the Red Army with the Cossacks. Eduard has no idea if she survived. Adele goes after him to try and get him off the train to Kiev, but then finds herself unwillingly joining him in his quest. On the way, they meet Lev, a charismatic Russian Ukrainian. He and his family are also trapped by their history. Adele falls in love with him, but it is 2014 and war between Russia and Ukraine is looming.
