Synopsis:
April 1944, my father was 20 years old. He lived in hiding in the woods, in the company of another fifty members of the resistance. He took part in acts of espionage, sabotage and combat. His nickname was Gandhi. At least, that’s what they said… 65 years later, when my father died, I decided to retrace his footsteps. My sole guide was a book he gave me. A book in which my father noted down the names of resistance fighters, and sketched out certain places… A puzzle started filling with each encounter. A story took shape… It started like all stories. Like the bedtime stories I read to my son. This is his story, my story, my father’s story. It begins with “Once upon a time.” Once upon a time, there was Ghandi.
