In post-World War II Budapest, 16-year old Klara reluctantly lives with her great-aunt, desperately hoping her mother and father will return to Hungary after being sent to camps. She then meets 42-year old Aldo, a doctor living in solitude after surviving the concentration camps. As they form a relationship emblematic of a father and daughter, the two begin to find hope again amidst the darkness of reconciling with the war, as each finds something in the other they have long been missing in life. This powerful narrative illuminates the healing power of love amid conflict, loss, and trauma. Introduction by Stan Stepanic (UVA)
