40 Years Later. The objects to which we cling throughout our lives

The film follows Moonika Siimets's parents, Tiina and Ülo, who have accumulated a large number of possessions over the years that have filled their home to the point where there is little room left to live comfortably. 

These possessions, such as piles of clothes, newspapers, and dishes, block access to essential areas of the home, like the dinner table and bed. The film explores the theme of attachment to material possessions and the difficulties that arise when it becomes hard to let go of them.
