This complicated history, full of deception and forgeries, moves from Zagreb to Tel Aviv to tell the story of Ernst Bechinsky, a man who died in Israel in 1969 - and then again in Austria in 1987.

In 2010, director Yair Lev’s mother learned that she had inherited a cottage in North London. To take possession, she had to prove that she was the daughter of Ernst Bechinsky, the former president of a Jewish community in Austria.

What seemed simple instantly became mysterious with the shocking discovery of a second man with the same name, birthday and birthplace as her father.

Yair Lev, an Israeli documentary filmmaker turns a detective and sets on a journey to uncover the true identity behind the man who stole his grandfather's identity.
