There is a neglected family home in Paramaribo. Almost fifty years ago, shortly after its construction, the house was left behind by a Surinamese family who moved to the Netherlands. Permanently, it turned out. Today, the house is a subtle reminder of the ties the family members have with their native country. In this poetic documentary about identity, migration and fleeting memories, the family looks for connections between their current life in the Netherlands and the recollections of the parental dwelling in Paramaribo.
