Austria 2013

The now grown up Leoš remembers his childhood in communist Czechoslovakia of the 1970ies, his escape to Austria and first impressions in this new home, but also the things and people he had to leave behind.

A film about the lightness and fleetingness of childhood memories and the weight they can have for a whole life.
