DIE RÜCKKEHR tells the story of HELENA and ANDREJ, two Russian Jews from the former Soviet Union who have been living in Germany for many years. While Helena has been able to integrate well into German society, both professionally and culturally, Andrej, a former practicing surgeon, has never really arrived. After the sudden death of his father, he approaches Orthodox Judaism in search of his own roots, coming into conflict with the cosmopolitan Helena and their two children. On the ruins of their “old life” the characters finally have to ask themselves the question of their true identity, nevertheless trying not to lose each other.
