The film presents the personal stories of the residents of the Moses Rosen Retirement Home in Bucharest, taking us through the Jewish quarter, in the areas where scenes of antisemitic violence took place during the 1941 pogrom, at the houses of the film’s subjects, and in front of the buildings that played an important role in the life of the Jewish community. We find out about the condition in which the Jews of Bucharest lived during the war, about the impact of the racial laws on their daily life, and about Jewish identity after the war.
The projection of the film is followed by a discussion with the residents of the retirement home, Katia Pascariu, David Schwartz, and Olga Stefan.
