An elderly gentleman attempts to retrieve forgotten memories while battling the progression and regression of the cycles of life.

A week prior to his passing, the filmmaker’s grandfather shared withhim his former aspirations of becoming a filmmaker. After numerous hardships, a narrow escape from the Nazis and an immigration to the US, the dream slowly, but surely, faded away. After his passing, the filmmaker uncovered an archival trove of dust-covered 8mm film that had seemingly not been viewed by anyone for at least a generation. Mesmerized, what unfolded before him was something most people, have never witnessed before: the development and utter decline of the human body and mind. Motivated by his grandfather’s unfulfilled dreams of filmmaking, he decided to piece together a film that he had already unwittingly made.
