The video takes the format of an experimental documentary and is inspired in the life of Lena Weisse Peters (1889-1996), a former ballet dancer and a land and slave owner by marriage. The 27 objects exhibited alongside the video, are a small part of her heritage, who is now managed by the Lena Weisse Peter Foundation.
