    "A woman from Los Angeles tries to come to terms with her father's death by traveling to Italy, the land of his birth, to trace the roots of his family tree. With the help of her feisty 82 year-old aunt (her father's sister), she travels relentlessly from city to city, digging through ancient manuscripts and interviewing a wide range of quirky scholars, to piece together the fascinating story of her Italian Jewish ancestors. As the woman continues her journey, her aunt begins to come to terms with her own past, and plans a journey to find and thank the family who hid her and the woman's father during WWII. Using both Monty Python-style animation and computer-enhanced marionettes, the film tells the story of Jewish money lenders, mystics, scientists and politicians, while reflecting on how our parents and their roots affect our sense of belonging, identity, and self worth" -- Container.
