The film interweaves historic events and personal memories.
I observe the way in which architecture represents the transformation of society and those that give shape to this architecture. We follow the path of Munio, my father, born in 1909 in Silesia, in Poland, son of a sharecropper of a Prussian junker. When he was 18, Munio left for Berlin and Dessau to meet Walter Gropius, Kandinsky, and Paul Klee at the Bauhaus. In 1933, the Bauhaus was shut down by the Nazis, who accused Munio of treason against the German people. Munio was jailed, then deported to Basel. He left there for Palestine. When arriving in Haifa, he started a career as an architect and adapted the modernist European princiiples to the Middle East.

The film is a journey in search of the relationship between a father and his son, architecture and cinema, the story of a life path and of personal fragments.
