For generations brothers have stopped speaking to each another. Now the three sisters want to break this taboo. In order to do so, they retrace the genealogy of the family discovering a constant line of fight that distinguishes their way of being alive. Throughout an intergenerational dialogue, the movie speculates on how the continuous antagonism in the family might have been a way to elaborate the trauma of the Shoah, and tells how the heredity of a similar event can be found stratified in the lives of the survivors. 

A warlike family diary to narrate (arguing) their own familiar unconscious.
