Projectionist Mitch is showing the last film before the cinema is turned into a digital multiplex. Through the projection window, he sees something unexpected on the screen – himself and a beautiful girl. He sets off to find her in the streets of the city that is home to film – Los Angeles. This nostalgic requiem to true cinema was made by the Iranian director and tireless experimenter Amir Naderi.
