The denunciation of a massacre in Germany in 1945, an emerald green accordion, discs of Italian music from the 1960s and a Russian coat. With a bicycle around Sardinia following his father's footsteps, the memories become more precise, the stories of the war clearer ...
A Russian coat, an emerald green accordion and a document that denounces the atrocities of war. Then, the electric sixties, the 45 rpm and the thousand stories in front of the fireplace. They are the objects that, like a compass, guide a child to undertake a "journey to the father", an archaic man and great "storyteller of silences". A true story, the story of a normal man, not a hero. One who went to war because he had to leave and returned even though it was difficult to return and, between going and passing out, he swallowed moments of absolute tragedy and spat out extraordinary courage. The green accordion tells about the Second World War through the recovery of the relationship between a father, Gavino Esse, of Sardinian origin, who was interned in a concentration camp in Germany, and his son Andrea who, moved from the desire to understand the father, he tries, after his death, to reconstruct the highlights of life based on the objects found.
Andrea, among the objects, discovers a document signed by his father and other interned political soldiers of the Lengenfeld concentration camp. It is the denunciation of a real massacre committed by Joseph Hartmann when he decided, on April 14, 1945, to close a hundred interned political prisoners in a wooden hut. That document pushes Andrea to know more. He then decided to visit the places of origin of Gavino: Luogosanto, Gallura ... Sardinia. The memories become more precise, the stories of the war clearer. Truly an incredible adventure, that of a normal man.
