A young mother flees Hungary in the midst of a revolution. Decades later, she reveals to her daughter a history of abandonment that crosses continents and four generations.

After fleeing the 1956 Hungarian revolution, Lili returns for the 60th anniversary, where she reveals to daughter Edie why she had to leave her first child behind. Edie starts her own investigation, journeying from Australia to come face to face with her abandoned half-sister and the painful truth behind their mother's decision. In the process, more secrets are exposed that re-cast wartime history and challenge Edie to try and reconcile her family's tragic past.
