Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein (1905-1989) was head of the Jewish Council of the artificial ghetto of Terezín (Theresienstadt in German). The Nazis made him representative of the community destined for extermination. Victim of a tragic contradiction, after the liberation by the Allied Forces he was tried and absolved from the accusation of collaborating with the Nazis. Murmelstein then moved to Rome, where he was ostracised by the Jewish community until he died. His son Wolf devoted his life to redeem his image, trying to paint a more complex picture of the role his father played in Terezín. The film reconstructs through the conversation between Wolf and the psychoanalyst, David Meghnagi, a son’s relationship with the memory of his father, between the acceptance, the denial, and the thematisation of a common familiar and familial tragedy.
