A young filmmaker Igor Ivanka finds a hidden and unpublished photo archive of his grandfather Leonid Burlaka, a famous Soviet cinematographer. Discovering a man that he never knew well enough through the damaged pictures, he gets closer to his dementing grandpa, facing the tension between memory and forgetting. The Ukrainian cinematographer Igor meets a young Soviet cinematographer Leonid who started establishing his career during the 'Khrushchev Thaw’. However, time is running out: soon Leonid will not remember Igor at all.
