New Jersey filmmaker Steve Besserman’s parents are both Holocaust survivors. Several years before she was stricken with dementia, his mother, Aranka, began to write memories of growing up in Hungary; being in ghettos and concentration camps; and how she met and fell in love with her husband. Besserman weaves his mother’s diaries together with his own journey to the places of which she wrote.
