Who the Devil Can See in the Dark

During World War 2, German soldiers left an invisible genetic legacy across Europe. They had affairs with local women in the allied and the occupied countries. Tens of thousands of children were born during the war. Most of the war children, now in their 70s, have only recently started to search for their fathers. Filmmaker Mari Soppela’s father is no different.
