Lucien, a young neuroscientist, reluctantly goes back to Paris to see his ailing father struck with a heart attack. The unresolved issues between a father and son take a turn when Lucien sees his father in the hospital. A father films his son growing up and now a son, 20 years later, turns the camera on his father, as both a need for revenge and a necessity to record memory. Home videos, science, and memory come together in this heartfelt story that sits at the interface between documentary and fiction.
