On April 28, 1945, survivors of the Nazi terror disembark a ship in Malmö. 70 years later they experience the magical moment when they each recognize themselves in the archive footage shot on the day of their liberation. A 4k-animated archival tour de force meets today‘s memories of the survivors. Their anonymous faces turn into names, fates and stories. They remind us that behind every ship of refugees arriving in a harbor today, there is a name and a human being. A masterpiece by the director of „Harbour of Hope“.
