Summary
In Times of Fading Light begins in September 2001 as Alexander Umnitzer, who has just been diagnosed with terminal cancer, leaves behind his ailing father to fly to Mexico, where his grandparents lived as exiles in the 1940s
Summary
Visiting the Mexico region where his grandparents lived as exiles, a terminal cancer patient surveys his family's political history, from his grandparents' return to the GDR to help build a socialist state, to his father's decade spent in a gulag for criticizing the Soviet regime, to his son's desire to leave the political struggles of the 20th century in the past
