Paper Bridge is primarily a voyage through Ruth Beckermann's own family history. Beckerman skilfully intertwines her family history within a wider geographical and political history of the plight of Jewish people of Central Europe. The journey takes Beckermann from Vienna, where her grandmother survived the war in hiding from the Nazis, to Israel where her mother returned after the war. The film then turns to examine the landscapes of her father's childhood: the Bukovina, once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
