        Bucharest, before and during World War II. Bernard Davidescou lives with his parents and his older brother on Triumph Street, in the middle of a courtyard block inhabited by a dozen Jewish families and two Christian ones.
        When Romania under General Ion Antonescu’s dictatorship allies itself with Hitler and invades the USSR, the Jews in Bucharest face the threat of being sent to the Nazi extermination camps, after having survived the terror of the fascist Iron Guard. However, each Sunday morning, young Bernard, age twelve, passionate about politics and history, amazes the adults in the courtyard, Jews and Christians alike, with his analysis of the political situation in Romania and the development of the war on all fronts.
        Triumph Street is the story of this young man and his dreams and torments during this dark period of human history. It interweaves themes such as the struggle against anti-Semitism, the chronicle of a family in crisis, the discovery of sexuality and first loves, but also the distraction offered by the cinema, religious searching and idealistic aspirations for a better world.
        After the war, Bernard joins a far-left Zionist movement, but his individualism soon bangs into the reality of collective life and his free spirit stumbles over the constraints of the revolutionary ideology.
