The story of Fred Zaidman, a Los Angeles son of Holocaust survivors, on a journey of discovery to trace his roots and “inherited trauma”. Armed with the determination and perseverance to push his limits, and only scant clues from his late parents, Fred ventures into a world of unknowns. Now, as he finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah with helpers abroad, and a Baptist minister from Atlanta, Georgia, Fred unshackles his own pain, and through the puzzle of his ancestral past he reconstructs his future.
