Cheyenne is a soft-spoken, retired rockstar still wearing make-up and hairspray whilst living in Dublin and has been estranged from his Jewish father for 30 years. When he discovers that his father is dying in New York, he is determined to set out to put things right with him, but his journey is delayed by Cheyenne's aversion to flying; when he finally makes his way over, he is too late to see his father alive for the final time. He learns that his father was a victim of persecution in Auschwitz during the Holocaust of World War II and that he was once made to suffer public humiliation by the Nazi officer Aloise Muller. In a last bid to make peace with his father, Cheyenne sets out to kill Muller (who is currently hiding out in the States) whilst meeting several people along the way, including members of Muller's family. When he is finally led to Muller, he finds himself confronted with a difficult decision as he listens to his story and, eventually, he manages to mark out a new chapter in his retired life.
Although, teeming with issues of a serious nature, 'This Must Be The Place' is a wonderfully funny and heart-warming story of war, peace and redemption. Directed by Paolo Sorrentino ('The Consequences of Love', 'The Family Friend') who co-wrote the screenplay with Umberto Contarello ('Light of My Eyes'), this unique comedy drama is set for release for the first time in the US on October 14 2012.
