Jonathan, a young Jewish American, flies to the Ukraine to trace his grandfather’s past.

He has a photograph and the name of a village. He hires “Odessa Heritage Tours”, made up of a gruff old man and his English speaking grandson. The three, plus grandfather’s deranged dog, travel in an old car from Odessa into Ukraine’s heart in search of the village of Tochenbrod.

The comedic landscape of cultural misunderstandings between the three travelling companions slowly darkens as they close in on the Jonathan’s grandfather’s past and the events of 1941
