1956: Amara, a young Italian journalist, is sent to report on the growing political divide between East and West in post-war central Europe. She also has a more personal mission: to find out what happened to Emanuele, her childhood friend and soulmate from pre-war Florence. Emanuele and his family were Jews transported by the Nazis from wartime Vienna. So she visits the Holocaust museum at Auschwitz, and Budapest, where she is caught up in the tumultuous events of the October rising against the Soviet Union. Along the way she meets many other survivors, each with their own story to tell. But did Emanuele survive the war or, like so many other Viennese Jews, did he die in Auschwitz or a ghetto in Poland?

Emanuele è un bambino ribelle e pieno di vita che vuole costruirsi un paio di ali per volare come gli uccelli, si arrampica sui ciliegi e si lancia in bicicletta giù per le strade sterrate. Ma tutto ciò che resta di lui è un pugno di lettere e un quaderno nascosto in un muro nel ghetto di Lodz. Per ritrovare le sue tracce, Amara, l'inseparabile amica d'infanzia, attraversa l'Europa del 1956 su un treno che si ferma a ogni stazione, ha i sedili decorati con centrini e puzza di capra bollita e sapone al permanganato. Visita sgomenta i resti del girone infernale di Auschwitz- Birkenau, percorre le strade di Vienna alla ricerca di sopravvissuti, giunge a Budapest mentre scoppia la rivolta, e trema quando i colpi dei carri armati russi sventrano i palazzi. Nella sua avventura, e nei destini degli uomini e delle donne con cui si intreccia la sua vita, si rivela il senso della catastrofe e dell'abisso in cui è precipitato il Novecento, e insieme la speranza incoercibile di un mondo diverso.

Una voce alla radio riporta Armida indietro nel tempo spingendola a ricordare volti di amici, sogni perduti e aspirazioni... Riaffiorano alla memoria il matrimonio con Paolo, l'amore difficile per Miele, un festival internazionale per giovani a Helsinki: un viaggio all'insegna della gioia e dell'entusiasmo.Ma anche il ritorno a Roma e la fine di un sogno. Treni per Helsinki, come quello di allora, non ce ne sono più. I festival della giovinezza sono tramontati, le utopie politiche sepolte chissà dove. Ma il mistero che quei momenti sembrano custodire forse non è niente altro che il mistero stesso della vita, di un futuro che molti si aspettano catastrofico e che invece smentirà, ancora una volta, tutte le previsioni.
