In May 2010, after a record rainfall, a flash flood broke the embankments of the Vistula near Wilkow. The only surviving family mementos were destroyed by water, mud and mold. What was left were only some fragments of compositions, shreds of portraits and silhouettes hard to identify. This film is a desperate attempt to keep memories, reconstruct people and events of the past. An impression on the transitory nature of memory, the inevitability of fading and the destructive force of elements.
