Just as water retains its memory even after its molecules separate, so love, through its overwhelming power, survives physical death and separation.

Holocaust survivor Joseph Gruferman reflects back on his life as he lay dying. His memories go as far back as his childhood in Russia, where his mother dominated the family. He also recollects his adulthood in France, where his wife had died 30 years earlier, and where his daughter now searches for a sense of identity.

Inspired by Lombardian legends, director Hector Faver fuses his own memory of what happened at the Jewish Cemetery of Carpentras with documentary fragments of concentration camps and with the fictional account of Gruferman's life. The result is a meditative work that celebrates the power of the memory of emotion.
