ANATOMY OF A DEPARTURE presents the director's family, who once lived in Ceausescu's oppressive Romania, a country with no illusions for a brighter future. With many difficulties, they immigrated to Germany, to seek the promise of freedom. Together with this family, we go back to a haunting decision, which once taken, successively destroyed the place they called home.
