Mrs. O. is suffering from dementia. Her story is told through a combination of documentary footage and her own video journals. The handy digital camera serves Mrs. O. to record instructions for different daily activities, memories, thoughts, and commentaries on various events. Trying naively to print herself into the medium of film for further reference in the memory-less future. Through an individual story of a gradual memory loss Alda reflects the attitude of the post-communist society towards its recent history.
