The first name he was given was JAN KAWASCH. His mother gave it to him and entered it to the birth certificate when he was in Siberia.
The second name- JAN VRANA, he got after his mother remarried, when she returned from Russia.
The third name â€“ JAN ANTAL, he took after his wife...
None of his names is his real one. He never met his father, he doesn't know whether he is a child of love or violence. He doesn't even know where his homeland is. This documentary is a story of Jan Antal who was born 57 years ago in a Russian gulag to a wrongfully deported Slovak mother. This is the first time he comes together with his daughter to places where he was born and spent the first six years of his life. He went to the end of the world with one question: â€œDid you know my father?â€.
