The director finds a boxful of 8 mm films with pictures from all over the world from a garage sale.
Night after night the thin strips of plastic lying in the box come to life. They are clearly filmed by the same person, but who has wanted to document all these moments? The calm after the storm, an oriental dancer, the mist in Machu Picchu – and a maggot eating a leaf, the neon signs screaming in Manhattan colours. The mysteriously quivering bustle of the extinct harbours. A million separately exposed frames. Somebody’s whole life and experiences for sale in a flea market.
The surprising discovery opens the door to a lost world and leads the viewer to a journey around the world and even further with a forgotten adventurer, an old sailor. While seeking the person behind the films the creator begins to wonder what will remain of us, when the results of decades’ commitment end up in a garage sale.
