Germany, 1927. A young Englishman, Henry Whitaker, arrives in the dying Weimar Republic on a desperate pilgrimage. The unexpected outcome will change the course of his life - spurring him into a career in cinema, first as assistant to the legendary director Arthur Maxted, and then as one of Britain's foremost documentary-makers. But he yearns to create a feature film of his own - a work of art which will finally silence the obsession that still haunts him. Oregon, USA, the present. An out-of-the-blue request from a film historian forces Henry's daughter, Miranda, to start confronting the ghosts of her own past. Did her father - as she has always supposed - drive her mother to suicide? Or do her half-repressed childhood memories hint at an altogether more complex and extraordinary truth?
