A discovered old family film has become the starting point for this cinematic essay about coincidences, wasted human fates and posthumous fame. The Sun Island was made by one of the most brilliant contemporary film experts, professor Thomas Elsaesser. His grandfather, Martin Elsaesser, a well – known architect and the main city planner of the city Frankfurt in years 1925-32 is the protagonist of this documentary. Apart from designing schools, churches and other public buildings, he was also the main architect of the Central Market Hall, the future residence of the European Central Bank considered to be a masterpiece.
