The film is inspired by the short story by Miljenko Jergović about a Jewish princess from 1943 who wished to become invisible. The other part of the film takes place at the end of 2006 in Berlin, where a tourist guide 'interprets' the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. In English, the guide tells of the scandals and anecdotes surrounding the monument's creation, which amuses the tourists who laugh during the whole tour.
