Having survived the camps, 42-year old Aldo lives a solitary life as a doctor in Budapest. 16-year old Klara lives reluctantly with her great-aunt, holding on to the hope that her father and mother will return. She meets Aldo, and soon the two of them find something in each other that has long been absent in their lives.
As they grow closer, the joy in both of their lives slowly returns. But, as the Soviet Union rises to power in Hungary, their pure and loving father-daughter relationship is misunderstood and frowned upon.
A lyrical story of the power of love in the midst of conflict, loss, and trauma, Those Who Remained reveals the healing process of Holocaust survivors through the eyes of a young girl in post-World War II Hungary.
Special remarks from Consul General of Hungary Mr. Tamas Széles and a post-screening conversation featuring author Leslie Gilbert-Lurie and Hungarian Holocaust survivor Eva Nathanson follows the film.
