John, a young American law student,  discovers old diaries written in German in his late great-grandmothers house.

He learns German and plans to travel to Germany to visit the place in Bavaria where his ancestors come from when the coronavirus pandemic hits the world and he’s stuck in Texas. However, a young historian helps him to translate the old German diaries and he discovers why his ancestors moved to America and what their lives were like in Texas in the late 19th and early 20th century. In 2022, John finally makes it to Germany. Together with his distant cousin Alexandra from Bavaria he uncovers a secret from the past and learns about connections between his family and the Nazis during the time of the Third Reich.
