Europe 1990, the Berlin wall has just crumbled: Katrine, now living in Norway since 20 years, is a war child: the result of a love relationship between a Norwegian woman and a German occupation soldier during World War II. When a lawyer asks her to be a witness in a trial against the Norwegian state on behalf of the war children, she resists. Gradually, a web of secrets is unveiled, until Katrine is finally stripped of everything, and her loved ones are forced to take a stand: What carries more weight, the life they have lived together, or the lie it is based on?
