Synopsis: Peter is on sick leave and spends most of his time alone in his house, contemplating his past. Little makes sense to him anymore. Comforted by his analogue radios, his memories and his loving wife, Peter is left yearning for the old days. This film shares with us a common fear of change portrayed through Peter’s struggle to find his place in the modern world.
Inhalt: Ein verschrobener schottischer Einsiedler in einem Haus voller alter Radios. Reminiszenz an das Dampfradio.
