A film crew is assembled to recreate a scene from a Swedish movie classic. The director analyzes the camera angles and the lighting, while chatting about the actors’ work and their costumes with the members of the crew. As the set is being completed, a film within the film slowly develops, and all the false starts and phony lines start to take on a life of their own. Is this a documentary, a copy, or simply a unique adventure?
