Best of Fest

(UK / 2018 / 100’)

Orlando von Einsiedel never backed down in the face of danger. On the contrary, he's always felt at ease in risky situations, as demonstrated by the Oscar® he won in 2017 with The White Helmets, the short film about a Syrian civil protection group of volunteers. But when it comes to Evelyn, the brother who took  his life when he was only 22 years old, everything changes: more than ten years after his passing, nobody has the courage to pronounce his name. To overcome trauma, Orlando and his family embark on a journey which takes them to all those places that still hold his memory. In the attempt to find the light again, clinging to one another, joined in a big embrace capable of soothing that unbearable pain.
