In this comedic drama, a young science fiction writer named David journeys to Poland to stay with his 75-year-old second cousin, Maria, a widowed Holocaust survivor. While David is searching for a quiet space to unblock his creative energy so he can revise his novel, the lonely Maria is thrilled for the chance to connect. As their bond grows, David learns a profound secret about Maria’s past that challenges their relationship and teaches them both about the meaning of being a family.
