Amidst a world­wi­de pan­de­mic that cau­ses sud­den amne­sia, midd­le-aged Aris (Aris Servetalis) finds hims­elf enrol­led in a reco­very pro­gram desi­gned to help unclai­med pati­ents build new iden­ti­ties. Prescribed dai­ly tasks on cas­set­te tapes so he can crea­te new memo­ries and docu­ment them on came­ra, Aris slides back into ordi­na­ry life, mee­ting Anna (Sofia Georgovasili), a woman who is also in reco­very. Through images dead­pan, stran­ge and sur­re­al, Greek wri­ter-direc­tor Christos Nikou posits a begui­ling reflec­tion on memo­ry, iden­ti­ty, and loss, explo­ring how a socie­ty might hand­le an irrever­si­ble epi­de­mic through one man’s sto­ry of self-dis­co­very. Are we the sum of the images we com­pi­le and dis­play of our­sel­ves, or are we some­thing richer, and deeper?
