About this item

Una delicada historia sobre el amor, la amistad y el recuerdo con el trasfondo de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Un viejo árbol. Una tortuga llamada Hitler. Dos mujeres. Y una casa en Viena llena de recuerdos.

Elisabetta ha vivido siempre en el hogar de su niñez y desde entonces todos los veranos prepara mermelada con los albaricoques del árbol de su jardín. Conserva un tarro de cada año, igual que conserva vivos los recuerdos de su primer amor, de su pequeña tortuga y del día en que todo cambió cuando sus padres y hermanas fueron deportados por las SS.

Cuando la joven y reservada bailarina Pola llega para vivir en la habitación que alquila la anciana, ambas mujeres descubrirán juntas que solo resolviendo los conflictos que las atormentan podrán por fin hacer las paces con el pasado.


A delicate story about love, friendship, and memories placed during World War II. An old tree. A turtle named Hitler. Two women. An old house in Vienna that is filled with memories.
Elisabetta has always lived in her childhood home and every summer she prepares jam with the apricots from the tree in her garden. She keeps a jar from every year, just as she also keeps alive the memories of her first love, of her little pet turtle, and of the day when her life changed forever as her parents and sisters were deported by the Schutzstaffel.
When the young and quiet dancer Pola moves into the room that the old woman rents, both women will discover that they must overcome old conflicts that torment them in order to make peace with their past.
