A big colonial farmhouse in the middle of a subtropical landscape. Speakers in the garden playing a soundtrack of memories left behind.
Six friends returne to the place where their friend Miguel spent his last days. They are here to pack boxes and collect things Miguel left behind. Turntables still connected to speakers, cables lying on the floor, his clothes and random belongings still spread around the house… Miguel used to record sounds compulsively and his recordings are now playing continuously through speakers inside and outdoors. These recordings of past times played out in the present keep bringing new and unexpected meanings to their actions; and for moments it’s as tough time didn’t exist…
