The film follows travelling group of people, sharing their personal video recordings from places such as India, Cuba or Etiopia, all transformed by one extraordinary experience. Their trans-like footage leads us through the banality of ubiquitous coverage to suddenly confronting the most amazing images, shot carefully from a unique perspective.

No DOP nor photographer has ever made these destinations look as fresh as these amateur films. Close-ups on the faces of people praying at the sacred river, slow-motion shots of reposing camels, a focus on unexpected details - like the sun standing still over a desert – masterpiece takes of unnamable beauty. These are rare gifts coming from an original point of view; found-footage work is edited with enormous empathy, poetry and humor, stunning images orchestrated with Zamilska contemporary electronic music.
