We re-trace the steps of Holocaust survivor Israel Arbeiter as he returns to Polans and Germany for the final time to look for items buried in 1939 in the basement of his old home in Plock, Poland as the German army advanced. We also travel with �Izzy�� to Treblinka death camp where his parents and younger brother were murdered and to other camps, most notably Auschwitz-Birkenau, where �Izzy�� used the motivation of his father�s final words to him to stay alive. He also reunites with those who, at great risk, helped him stay alive. A somewhat strained impromptu meeting with a former German soldier is also chronicled.
