Enzo (13) plays online games all the time. One day he has to go for a trip from Austria to Israel, where he meets Abraham Gafni (90).

Enzo is bored to death but perks up his ears, when Abraham tells him about his life. 

In 1938, as a ten-year-old Jew from Innsbruck in Austria, Abraham had to flee the Nazis in 1938. The loss of his left behind grandparents and little sister, murdered by the Nazis, accompanies him to this day.

Through Abraham's story, Enzo recognizes the value of humanity and friendship.
