“A tender, beautiful and loving film, which subtly recalls the crucial part the German Jews once had within Berlin culture.”  

 Berliner Morgenpost

 
During the 1920s, Café Nagler was the hottest place in Berlin. Mor, the film's director embarks on a journey to find out what's left of her family's legendary café. Her grandmother follows the filming with great anticipation. When Mor discovers the true story behind the café, she is unable to break her grandmother's heart and looks for a creative solution. Café Nagler is a film about memory, about our need for family myths and about our longing for a different past.
