Description: In the period before World War II, Joseph (Jan Nowicki) is on his way to visit his father in a sanatorium. As he travels by train, his reminiscences and fantasies blend together and become a revelatory window into the mind and psyche of a somewhat mystical young Jew. Among the images that are brought to the screen are the ghettos, black colonial mercenary soldiers, and memories of Jacob's mother and father in better times.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
