Every military conflict leaves behind the deepest scars especially concerning children. To heal these scars Austrian children have been sent to whole Europe after the end of World War II  - between 1950 and 1955. They regained trust and enough weight to survive. This act was an European demonstration of solidarity when there was no united Europe. The “Butterkinder” from that time - for a big part - are the first Europeans from today. This can be followed by hearing several witnesses. The documentary is a look back to that humanity which we miss quite often these days
