Poet­ical, asso­cia­tive docu­men­tary crit­i­cally observes how we as Euro­peans commem­o­rate, (re)present and inter­pret our recent, dark history. The film shows land­scapes, people and objects history has left its traces on. For example, Battles shows how bunkers are reused as cowsheds in Albania, how forgotten bombs are set off in a deserted amuse­ment park in Belgium, and how captivity under the Soviet régime is offered as a tourist attrac­tion in Latvia.
