An album of photographs, even those of a family we don't know, makes us remember our own situations and the experiences that affected out entire life. It is not necessarily the most important events. Very often the first scenes that come to mind are simple images, moments, sounds and smells from the years of our childhood and adolescence. So we can all recognize and remember our own images and our own feelings. Stefanos pulled out his first tooth by tying it to the door knob with a piece of string. His mother told him that if he threw it on the roof tiles a raven would bring him a ring.But he didn't wait. He stole it from his aunt Venetia's jewelry case and promised it to Marina, his first cousin. Kiss-kiss the grownups told them, but the cousins kissed on the mouth. Only during their adolescence things went too far. They had to break up. They went their own ways only to meet again at the death of Stefano's mother, 20 years later. They'll certainly have a lot to say to each other.
