At nightfall, a four-engine aircraft landed at an airport. Only one passenger goes down, Joe, the last survivor of the Jewish family Falsch. He has left Berlin for forty years, in 1938. In the arrival room his dead family is there: parents, sister, brother, sister-in-law, aunt (all of them dead in concentration camps), the uncle and his wife (exiled in England, passed in Palestine and returned to die in Berlin) and Lili, the young German, daughter of a Nazi, whom he loved and who died under the bombing of Berlin. A night of celebration but also face to face dramatic for those thirteen people who have all suffered.
