The burning down of the cultural hub of the Slovenian community in Trieste, the symbol of its presence in this city, was merely the beginning of the cruel course of events that unfolded for the people of the region. The documentary sheds light on the century that twisted the fates of many in the most painful ways – the time before, during and after WWII, when people found themselves under pressure from fascist powers. The film interprets the troubled, turbulent, rebellious years that remain controversial long after the border has opened.

This is a film on fascism and revolt. It captures a century that cannot be forgotten, nor can it be allowed to be replaced in our historical memory by convenient current political views of the past. But above all, it is a film that in the time of intemperance, rising nationalism, and intolerance, warns us that there can be no other, better world without respect.
