Synopsis

Film about forgetting, remembering and documentary film making itself. The director filmed documentary footage during 15 years and left it unwatched prior to the editing. Distance opened a new perspective to the entirely different story than was intended to record. A few exact memories are seen, good stories told, two fairy tales heard and a report received on how many hours of video footage man has shot in the course of history. The fascinating scenes are created by combining the originally unrelated shots with a recreated soundtrack. The hilarious and fascinating scenes are created by combining the originally unrelated shots and a recreated soundtrack with dubbed dialogue.
