    • Synopsis
    • When she was 14 years old, the Polish Jewess Tsecha Szpigel, Tsé, was thrown out the window of a moving train, by her own mother, to save her. The train was on its way to the Nazi extermination camp at Sobibor. Tsé had to reinvent herself to survive. Years later she went to Brazil. The documentary recounts her saga through the testimony of Tsé herself, her descendants and under the eyes of her grandson, Fabio Kow, director of the film. The story deals with universal issues such as intolerance, love for life and constant reinvention.
