Johannes “Hans” Liebschner filmed his life from 1963 to 2012. Born in 1927, he came to Italy due to the war and stayed after falling in love with Iole, a young Italian girl from Bergamo, with whom he had five boys. In fifty years of amateur filming, Hans creates the intimate story of a united and happy family, although in 2013, the year of his death, his films ended up for sale in a second – hand market. Who was to get rid of those precious memories? His sons Klaus and Peter try to solve this mystery, retracing the story of a family that goes through social and cultural changes, recorded through the technological and expressive evolution of home movies.
