Milan. A few of the objects belonging to the list of goods that my family carried out of the Soviet Union in 1957, while emigrating to Italy, and a photograph from 1919 portraying the house where my grandfather was born. In the village of Yamna, in Ukraine, a wide area, patrolled by armed guardians. Inside the few remaining buildings of an abandoned sanatorium and an old wooden house, which looks exactly like the one my family owned. The further the inquiry proceeds, the more the inhabitants of the village will be entangled in the voids of their collective memory. The help of two of them will be crucial: Petro, the oldest partisan in the area, and Yura, the taxi-driver. The confessions will shed light on the fate of the house, just before the whole village will be buried again in its silent secrets.
