THAT TRIP WE TOOK WITH DAD is a moving story taking place in a turbulent year – 1968. With the “Prague Spring” setting the scene for the film, a German family from Arad (Romania) – two unequal brothers and their father – start a journey towards the GDR. There, the older brother hopes for a surgery of the weary father to restore the family harmony again. But after they cross the East-German border, their way back is closed by Soviet tanks moving into the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. Suddenly the family finds itself in West-Germany and our protagonists are faced with an universal question: How much sacrifice do you accept to reunite with your family?
