Directed by Cassio Tolpolar
US-Brazil-Moldova | 55 minutes | 2014
Portuguese, Russian, Romanian, Yiddish with English subtitles
In 1931, Abraham Tolpolar and his wife, Rachel, emigrated from Bessarabia (back then Romania and today Moldova) to southern Brazil. 77 years later their only child, Mauro, and his two adult children make the trip back to visit his parents’ birthplace in search for answers to an unrevealed past. They carry with them the only remaining photograph of a lost family grave. The Tolpolar drive through a beautiful landscape from rural village to another, walk through abandoned cemeteries, and meet locals in their quest to find out what happened to their relatives who disappeared during the Holocaust.
