Walking Back to Happiness

Read more


A filmmaker embarks on a search for his real family name as the one passed down from father to son is not right: somewhere in the family history, a father has given his name to a child that wasn't his. The younger generation don't know all the details and the elders keep their mouths shut. The first person he wants to talk to is his father, with whom he has always had difficulties. The somewhat stubborn pater familias isn't too pleased with his son's endeavour but, in front of the camera, they talk openly about family secrets and feuds.
