A meditative story of a parent-child relationship, Heilig is an intimate portrait of Jewish Kindertransport refugee Gerhard Heilig, now 85 and living in retirement in Vienna. Heilig explores not only Gerhard's own escape from Nazi Austria but the imprisonment in Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps of his father Bruno Heilig, an anti Nazi political journalist and later the writer of one of the first eye witness accounts of life in the concentration camps
