Fresh off their wedding ceremony, Anna and Adam—a Jewish couple from Paris—travel to Poland for a memorial service. The eye-opening trip awkwardly doubles as their honeymoon, in this delightful romantic comedy from noted French director Elise Otzenberger. They will attend a ceremony in memory of the Jewish community in Adam’s grandfather village, which was destroyed 75 years prior. Adam is not particularly enthusiastic about the trip, but views it as an opportunity to spend quality time with his wife, away from their baby boy.
Anna, on the other hand, is both anxious and eager about the journey. She is hoping to reconnect with her own roots and finally discover more about her own family’s history, which has always been a mystery.
