The families of artist Tal Rosenzweig and filmmaker Daniel Dencik originates from the same village in the former Czechoslovakia. Though parted, emigrated, immigrated and almost eliminated, years later, faith brings the two families together in the suburb of Copenhagen, where Tal and Daniel grow up.
