This is a personal exploration of the physical and mental repercussions of emigration. In 1969 a pregnant 18-year old girl flees her country with her married lover as the Russian tanks roll into the streets of Prague. They end up in Norway. They have a daughter. They become successful in the world of theater. At the height of fortune the beautiful mother decides to send her 15-year-old daughter away. They are never to live together after that. Now the mother lives in Los Angeles and the father has moved back to Prague. Contact between the family today is primarily through sporadic phone calls for the mother. The movie is an emotional journey of the daughter trying to map the disintegration of the family. It is an intimate story of her own family, with gleams of her childhood in Norway, her exile in the USA, and her "return" to the Czech Republic. Scenes of lonely characters set in different landscapes intercut with tragicomic meetings of family members who live their separate lives in various countries. The author is searching for answers to find out where her true home really is, searching in Prague, Oslo and Los Angeles.
