In 1943, a young Ashkenazim namely Akiva risks a journey through Miechów in Poland in order to fulfill his obligation to honor his deceased mother on the anniversary of her death. He gets arrested by the Nazis and runs into an elderly rabbi he knows, who also is in Nazi custody. The rabbi, who has lost his entire family to the Holocaust, is hoping to escape Poland for the Promised Land. They are, in time, able to escape from the Nazis. Akiva is then accompanied by the rabbi, so that Akiva can visit his mother’s grave and perform the requisite ritual.
