Stacey Tenenbaum’s visually stunning documentary tells the story of everyday objects and the people who continue to have a connection to these objects after they have been discarded.

Our modern world and consumer culture creates vast amounts of scrap in the wake of progress. This film explores those vistas and the people who work, live, and create with the stuff the rest of us leave behind. Their stories convey a deeper environmental and human message about our relationship to things.
