In 1958 Robert Gottlieb was forced to renounce his Romanian citizenship in order to migrate to Israel. 50 years later his daughter Yaela (re)builds that route but her father's story does not match the places she knew. Family mandates and ghosts of the past get materialize. He from Lima and she from Buenos Aires, for the first time, find an undeniable gap that leads her to wonder: who is her father?
