The film links two apparently unrelated moments in the construction of Brasília: the dream by an Italian saint used to justify its creation and a small city built by the workers constructing the new capital to house them and their families. How do you make sense of a city built on a dream? Sometimes a documentary can feel like a fairy tale.

A travelogue that is both strange and familiar, abstract and real. It begins as a traveler’s sketchbook, drawn in Croatia in the summer of 2014, but details soon fade away into abstract impressions on the edges of memory. This film is reduced to its essence - a condensed feeling of one place and time.
