This Must Be The Place

Learning his father is close to death, Cheyenne, a retired rock star living off his royalties in Ireland, travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late. He then embarks on a quest to find his father's tormentor, an ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the US.
