A personal story about life in one of the world's wealthiest countries.

My grandmother was very good at preserving things. Plastic bags were turned inside out, washed, dried, nicely folded, and put in the closet. I am not like her. I buy a lot of things I don't really need. But how do I make sense of all the things I buy? Is this how I create my history?

This documentary investigates how we give meaning to our consumption and how we communicate and try to express ourselves through our material abundance.
