Exasperated by his family’s demands and the ills of old age, Abraham Bursztein, an 88-year old tailor from Buenos Aires, embarks on a journey that takes him back to the old continent – and his old self. Back in Poland for the first time in over 70 years, he fulfils a promise he made to the man who saved him from death after he survived Auschwitz. A heartwarming study of old age and the role past events play in our current lives.
