Storyline

The story of a retired music professor, Misha Brankov, who under unusual circumstances discovers his true origins. At the place where once stood a Nazi concentration camp for Jews during World War II, a metal box filled with documents is found. It was buried by an inmate Isaac Weiss in the year 1941. The professor finds out that his real parents, the Weiss's, gave him away to their friends, the Brankovs, just before they were taken into the camp. Inside the box there is an unfinished musical score, called "When day breaks", composed by the inmate Isaac Weiss. Searching for the truth about himself and his origins, Misha discovers the little-known truth about Judenlager Semlin camp, one of the worst Nazi execution sites in the heart of contemporary Belgrade. At the same time, the professor's obsession is to complete the composition, started by his father, and to perform it on the site of the former camp... which he, after many vicissitudes, finally succeeds.

Discovering your past
4 February 2013 | by abcvisionSee all my reviews

Serbian Music Professor is on top of his world, he is celebrating a successful career and entering a restful retirement. He is well respected in his community and he loves those around me. He is a man at peace. Then, suddenly a small metal box turns his life upside down. In it is a photo of his birth father and his writings, one being a music composition. Then all of a sudden it seems everyone around him knew from his brothers and family friends that he was adopted. This sets Misha Brankov (Mustaf Naderevic) on an odyssey to discover his Jewish heritage and seek a way to tribute his parents while moving forward. This movie is amazing, in Serbian, it also chronicles a lost generation that was lost to the atrocities of the Holocaust. I saw this movie as part of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. dr.
