A former military barracks of the Wehrmacht now serves as a refugee camp for people from Ukraine. waking up in silence accompanies the children on their journey, where their own history intertwines with that of the barracks. A moment between past and future, war and silence, departure and arrival, which paints a portrait of German past and present through the eyes of its young protagonists.
