Sergio's life is mirrored in the house he built, a labyrinth of books, photos and memorabilia collected over his career as journalist, intellectual, storyteller and television pioneer. He leads us through the five floors, his life unfolding in this perambulation, in the objects and 50,000-plus books that the house contains. Surrounded by a beehive of female activity that provide for him, Sergio moves about the house he built and where he kept coming back to from his continuous travels.
“… A house-male because it protects, because these are my women, because it’s where I return to…” he thinks aloud in the film. Following Sergio’s physical and mental wanderings in his labyrinthine home, the film turns into an intimate excavation of what is memory and a question about what will be our legacy to the ones we love.
