The film is about mercy and forgiveness. A documentary director (Søren Fauli) puts himself in the position of main character and makes a journey to Germany in order to forgive former SS-officer Søren Kam. Kam participated in killing Fauli's grandfather during the German occupation of Denmark in the late 1940s. The film is a well-crafted description of a physical journey to the heart Europe as well as a journey to the heart of the concept of mercy. In this way it is an important antidote (played out on a personal level) in the ever more present retaliation and 'an eye for an eye'-reality of today's political stage.
