A video collage of song and remembrance. The story is based on Judith Magyar Isaacson's highly acclaimed memoir recounting her real-life story as a young Hungarian girl growing up during the tumultuous years of WWII and the Holocaust. The film follows Judith's present day journey back to the places of her past, reflecting an interior journey to recover memories she had long repressed as a means of survival. Based on the electronc chamber opera by Mark Polishook the libretto was drawn from the memoirs of Judith Magyar Isaacson. The film's soundtrack is a contemporary electronic opera for one voice, featuring acclaimed vocalist Angelina Reaux. Staged scenes from the opera, together with rare archive footage and private family photos, combine to create a haunting tale of a young woman's coming of age. "What makes the film truly unique is the use of dramatic excerpts from a one-woman electronic opera of Isaacson's life that adds dimension to the story." -- Library Journal Directed and edited by Andrea Weiss. Produced by Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss in association with the Banff Centre for the Arts and New York State Council on the Arts.
