Upon discovering that his paternal grandfather was from Poland, a gay Swiss man sets out on a frantic mission to connect with his Polish roots. Lionel (director and co-screenwriter Lionel Bair) has recently unearthed the truth about his distant grandfather, and now he'll stop at nothing to completely immerse himself in Polish culture. From cheering the Polish soccer team to abandoning his longtime boyfriend to shack up with an illegal Polish au pair, Lionel is determined to embrace his Polish heritage. Though his mother and father are entirely supportive of the curious endeavor, Lionel's disapproving sister Lucie (Natacha Koutchoumov) thinks her brother has finally fallen off the deep end. Later, after Lucie drives the pair to Warsaw in order to discover the truth about their family lineage, Lionel becomes hopelessly stranded in Auschwitz and befriends a gay film student named Stan (Michael Rudnicki). In the following days Stan does his best to reacquaint Lionel with his true sexuality, and in the process also helps to bring Lionel and Lucie closer together than ever before. What Lionel discovers as his journey draws to a close will prompt both he and his sister to look back into the past with an open mind and a newfound willingness to embrace the past no matter how strange it may seem in the present.
