Through the story of a son reconstructing his father’s revolutionary past from a diary, the filmmaker draws a portrait of two generations of men, fathers, and sons, who were revolutionaries of the 1970s. This is a poetic flight in time, back to when young men dreamed of changing the world with their own hands and forward to a present where young men just want the security of a salaried job.
