Short film about the difficulty of remembering and the importance of forgetting. A film essay portraits a middle aged woman, through her voice and stories she tells about analogical cameras she has been using during her life, for art and film making. Her hands are shown opening and closing the cameras and testing if and how they still function. In between these images clips from 8mm material of landscapes and animals in Southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego are shown.
