“A Holocaust survivor’s son living in Trieste as a surgeon begins to doubt his actions of refusing to help a victim of a traffic accident. An unusual moral tale.”
Simone Segre, a renowned surgeon of Jewish origins, lives in the city of Trieste in the northeast of Italy. He has a quiet life, an elegant apartment, and no connection with his past. One day he finds himself assisting a male victim of a hit-and-run accident. But when he discovers a Nazi tattoo on his chest, Simone abandons him to his destiny. Filled with guilt, he ends up tracing the man’s family: Marica, the eldest daughter; Marcello, a teenager plagued with racial hate; and little Paolo. The night will come when Marica knocks at Simone’s door and unknowingly asks for payback.
