This insightful documentary presents Arnošt Lustig’s reflection on his life. With humor and a detached view, Lustig guides us through the hard period of the 1930s and the 1940s up to the present. His reflection is aided by his sister Hana Hnátová, author Zdeněk Mahler, his friend from Auschwitz Jiří Justic, and his friend from Theresienstadt Marta Kottová. The 1960s are depicted by author Karel Hvížďala and actress Květa Fialová. Still, in full strength, Arnošt Lustig shares his experience and opinion in a focused, original and unique way.
