An old man doesn’t recognize his own face in the mirror. He has Alzheimer’s disease. His memories are gradually fading. One day, he decides to tell his reflection the story of his life. That man is the Slovak-born Brazilian architect Hans Broos. Described as a brutalist architect”, he is known for his characteristic cement buildings, to which he adds a touch of poetry. Here we follow the melancholy stroll of the architect, played by an actor, as he recalls his life.
