Dara, an ethnologist, arrives to document the houses tagged for demolition. Lucek, a young Polish man and his colleagues, prepare the future construction site. Käthe works on the ferry, steadily moving people, their stories, and goods to and fro. Birte and Leif leave their house passed on for generations. Agnes’s life resounds inside her diaries, collectibles and walls of her house being prepared for demolition. A Danish summer: long days turn into blue nights.People meet and part ways again.
