The story of a central European family whose ranks include the names of some of leading historical figures of the last two centuries (Marx, Heine, Mendelssohn, Husserl, etc.). In a study that interweaves past and present, the narrator relives the memories and human dramas that enabled him to understand “what it means to really belong to the human community of the living and the dead”.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT:
The idea for the film comes from a short story collection by Giorgio Pressburger. I was immediately struck by the power of his words, while instantly grasping what a difficult and delicate job it would be to turn them into a film. Giorgio’s voice carries enormous emotional weight, and it was exciting to work with him and key figures from the last two hundred years.
