Mysterious events unfold and reveal how Martha, a Polish holocaust survivor, managed to lead a double life in Australia. The fun loving Jewish artist and doting mother, died without ever revealing her secret. The film follows Martha's daughter Eve, over a decade, as she unlocks the mystery behind the streets named Eve and Martha. Clues are found in old recordings and Martha's home movies showing a man looking lovingly into the lens. Eve's investigation leads her to the Sobieski castle in the Ukraine, the site of a massacre where her grandmother died, and the Eichmann trial as she explores her parents' holocaust survival and her father's heroic escape from a concentration camp. When a 'doppelgänger' contacts Eve, her life is forever altered, as she uncovers lies, tracks down her mother's young lover and reveals the family secret that led her to rewrite her entire life.
