A freewheeling caper involving Brooklyn boxers and bouncing balls, Catalan dancers and Provençal dogs. The Douro, the Danube, Biarritz, and Brazil are captured on legendary Kodachrome 40 super 8 film that is gone forever. Nicolas Frize’s soundtrack uses voices from his own archives, remixed in ‘Frize-frame’ style.
