Yambo, a rare-book dealer in Milan, suffered a loss of memory. While he can remember the plot of every book he has ever read, he no longer knows his own name, doesn't recognize his wife or his daughters, and remembers nothing about his parents or his childhood. In an effort to retrieve his past, he searches through boxes of old newspapers, comics, records, photo albums, and adolescent diaries to relive the story of his generation: Mussolini, Josephine Baker, Flash Gordon, Fred Astaire.
