Documentary about the consequences of the war for three generations of women. Charlotte Cohen and het mother were taken in early 1944 to the concentration camp Bergen-Belsen. In sight of liberation, most of the prisoners at Bergen-Belsen were put in trains. For fourteen days, Charlotte and her mother crossed Germany, back and forth. In the village of Troebitz the 'lost transport' came to a halt. There were liberated and given temporary accomodation. Years after the war, Charlotte's traumas have their influence on the life of het daughter. She has never been in a camp, but knows the misery from the inside. With four other ex-camp victims, mother and daughter travel by train to Bergen-Belsen and Troebitz. For all of them it is a journey with no end in sight.
