An elderly lady pursues her audiophile obsessions. When she is absent she records the sound of her house to listen to it later. A life of accidental and environmental sounds, collected on countless C60 cassettes. Orla McHardy’s poetic collage portrait of negative film, photos, dried flowers, animation sequences and sounds not only has a big heart for Eva Hipsey. It also reveals a passion for amateur recordings and their flaws, which keep generating secrets.
