Anna and Adam, a young Parisian couple with Jewish origins, are about to travel to Poland for the first time. They are just married and, technically speaking, this will be their honeymoon. They will attend a ceremony in memory of the Jewish community in the village of Adam's grandfather, which was destroyed 75 years ago. Adam is not enthusiastic, but sees it as an occasion to spend some quality time with his wife, away from their baby. Anna on the other hand is both extremely anxious and overly excited about the trip to her grandmother's country. She is hoping to reconnect with her roots and finally discover more about her own family's mysterious history. In this alternately zany and serious travel tale, they encounter a journey full of surprises during which they discover much more than intended.
