Synopsis not correct. A Polish veteran returns to Krakow 20-something years after the war, perhaps thinking his older son and former wife would be living ideally but he finds they're almost alien. This vagueness, their void, is their reality, a result of having lived through the longevity of oppression, "a false life as the only true life." His search to unlock the disappearance of his younger son seems a lost cause.
