Synopsis

Nora is making a film for the first time. She doesn’t quite know how to use her handheld camera and she hasn’t mastered the art of on-camera interviews. In fact, she doesn’t want to be in front of the camera at all. Instead, she is more interested in talking to her friends about their notebooks. What they write about, whom they share their writings with. As Nora begins to ask increasingly personal details of her friends, however, the film becomes more complex. This diarist film explores the limits of personal boundaries and the complicated dynamics of inner lives.
