Film about a film: experimental documentary about a documentary which in spite of the shootings that started in 2007 and with many breaks lasted till 2014 is not completed. The hero, a mortician who himself has said goodbye to the world, the director that is filled with thoughts about the film material, producers, editor, the film critic try to penetrate into the reasons of the fiasco. How does the film become a film? What are the mechanisms working during this process? And finally isn’t a failed film a film material itself?
