The film explores memory as a container of our identity. It is based on the personal story of the author and her brother who was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The narrative and form of the film follow the idea of perceiving reality with a broken memory. An animated documentary experiments with art and film techniques and balances itself on the edge of genres.
