A film about personal identity, sense of belonging, the bond between generations and the power of big dreams. Together with the charming Fanny (90), who was resettled from former Yugoslavia at the beginning of the Second World War and her ambitious granddaughter Alex (30) from Germany, we invite the audience on a journey through the life of two powerful ladies from different generations. They will learn about female role models, and how they have changed in the last century. They will get a feeling about what it means to lose home, family and to be forced to build up a new existence in a foreign country. “A Serenade for Fanny“ should encourage everyone to show persistence in hard times, to break free of social conventions and to believe in dreams when they come to you – no matter how old you are!
