Manny Drukier narrowly escaped the war by jumping from a “death train” at age 16, finding refuge at a home for orphans and displaced children. 71 years later, Manny—who lives in Toronto—is tracked down by a German researcher who has been searching for the surviving children for the past decade. She invites Manny to return to the former orphanage to share his story with the next generation of school students. Manny must now revisit the places of his darkest memories, to reconcile the past and educate the future.
