The film is the continuation series of work examining the period of radical social experiment that took place in Soviet Europe in the post war period. This examination isn’t inspired by a sentiment of a Utopian past. The creation of a multicultural mega state under the common idea of an International social[ist] community, that covered nearly half of the planet, ironically, is similar to the current moment when we are facing the challenges of European Union integration. This cinematic assembly of private photographs, which portrays the life story of a family. The pictures depict a common life in the Socialist era and that experience, which seem to have been totally lost.
