A documentary about the removal of boundaries in the workplace. Man, as the most important motor of growth in our highly skilled Western service society, has become the focus of modern management practices. By following these different procedures, the film explores companies’ efforts to motivate their employees so that they give their maximum performance. From innovative office architecture that is supposed to create a whole world of emotions for employees, to the complete digital registration of employees’ personality traits, the workingman has now entered the matrix of a total working world.
At the end of his life Holocaust survivor and Hollywood producer Branko Lustig, soon to be 80 years old, sets out once more to prove his love to his daughter Sara: After 25 years he returns to his hometown Osijek/Croatia to meet his daughter who is in search for her own and her father's identity. Who is this man who with the movie Schindler's List followed up on a promise he gave as a young boy to the murdered Jews in a concentration camp? How did he manage to survive the horrors of the Holocaust and not to loose faith in humanity? How has his fate affected his work and family? The film is a touching road movie following the life story of Branko Lustig from his time in Auschwitz as a 12-year-old to Hollywood and to his return to his native country Croatia at the age of almost 80 years. On this journey we meet movie stars like Meryl Streep, Ridley Scott, Volker Schlöndorff and Branko Lustig's longtime friend Steven Spielberg with whom he initiated the Shoa Foundation. Furthermore, the film tells a moving father-daughter story: The relationship between Branko and his daughter had been strained and distant for many years. The father was too preoccupied with himself, his war trauma and later with his career in Hollywood. Sara stepped out of her father's shadow, became a lawyer and - as the daughter of a Holocaust survivor - defended war criminals at the tribunal in The Hague. Only slowly did the two approach again and gradually they get back together. The film will accompany this process, thereby telling a lot about the generation of the children of Holocaust survivors. A film about the magic of cinema, the happiness of a family and the invincible will to survive.
