SYNOPSIS: A found footage film with no found footage. A study in aphorisms: The Sad Tropics, Elian Gonzalez, un-attributed master paintings and mis-attributed artifacts alongside the history of denim. Grappling with the construction and collapse of culture through specific objects and narrativized histories; signs, myths and legacy are questioned and revised.
