Emmi, a student in Paris falls in love with an older French man. Emmi and Alex desire to start their life together in Budapest. Alex wants to divorce his wife. He feels that the only connection between them is their 18 year old daughter. While the confusion around the divorce moves on Emmi finds love letters and an old amateur film among the family heritage. The film and the letters seem to unfold a secret: Emmi’s grandmother was in love with a Polish man before the war. But she married someone else. Emmi watches the film in the Film Institute and she meets László Légoza there. He gets under Emmi’s spell and the mysterious love story interests him very much. But the girl goes back to France with Alex. Grund, the Polish second-hand bookseller who lives in Paris, helps them with a list about the members of the French resistance. There seems to be evidence that the secret Polish lover was in France during the war. Grund is hurt by love; his wife left some years ago and went back to Poland. These four people take part in the investigation. The tracks lead to Flanders. By this time our heroes wonder how to choose between two loves, and how to get an old love back. It’s a road-movie about love. After a number of encounters, lovemaking, and fights we get to the Polish beach, to the same place where that amateur film was shot and where everything is about to change...
