When renowned German dentist, Friedrich Mueller, is discovered concealing his Jewish ancestry, he must compromise his ideals and take a secret oath to avoid the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Compelled to leave their beloved country, Friedrich and his wife, Eva, make a perilous journey to the promised land of Palestine. They open a dental practice in the heart of the Old City, determined to promote equality, tolerance and reconciliation. When sectarian war engulfs them in 1948, they are forced to seek refuge in California with their one-year-old adopted Arabic son, Frankie. After growing up to become a Hollywood superstar dentist, Frankie's life spins off the rails. He flees to Gaza in an attempt to reconnect with his lost Arabic heritage. When he is arrested as a terrorist and charged with murder, Friedrich is faced with revealing his secret, in order to save the life of his son.
