Sai works as a location scout for a film production company and is always taking photos with her digital camera – a kind of professional illness. She documents everything she notices on her forays in the city and its ruins. The mass of pictures are organized quite simply: one hard drive per year. A photo of her and Oom, whom she meets on a job, is also on one of the drives. Years later, Sai discovers that the hard disk is faulty and that the only proof of her meeting with Oom is thus lost forever. A wonderfully gentle reflection in just 36 scenes on the dynamics of remembering and memory loss. A love story for the digital age.
