Senza Nostalgia

Filmmaker Patrick Pellegrino was raised by his father Toni knowing very little about his Italian roots. Toni, now a retired schoolteacher in his sixties, returns to the Italy he last saw as a child, in the company of his sister Raffaella, and his son Patrick. Raffaella’s memories of the good life they had, and of the family’s post-war desperation, hit her like a ton of bricks, whereas Toni believes he is immune to any nostalgia of his homeland Calabria. This innocent escapade becomes, without the principal characters realizing it, an interior quest exploring the real and the imaginary from their past, as Toni tries to uncover answers to the question: why did the family flee Italy?
