What begins as a biography of a house, told through bittersweet and sometimes humorous personal anecdotes, ultimately raises larger questions about the emotional content of physical spaces, and what happens to our histories when we leave those places behind.
The film contains extensive photography of the filmmaker's childhood home, which was sold just a few months after the images were taken.
