This documentary animation tells a war story of a family presenting a unique, intimate point of view. The testimony of annihilation has a private dimension in this film, filtered through the perspectives of three women. But the pain of the inherited trauma affects the mother, the daughter and the granddaughter, each one to a different extent. Teresa Ferenc, a poet, was 9 years old when her village was burnt down. This memory also returns in the writing of her daughter, Anna Janko. The literary notes in the interpretation of Magdalena Cielecka and with the animation by Tomasz Siwiński are a testimony to the memory powered by fear.
