Divided into two parts the film exposes viewers to some of the personal thoughts and challenges faced by researcher/filmmaker Horn in Part 1, Research. Part 2, Souvenir (Dialogues), offers the Zimbabwean women involved in the research an opportunity to question Horn about his choice of souvenirs from the field; providing the political and economic backdrop to the ongoing exodus of Zimbabweans and leading up to the removal of long standing President Robert Mugabe. Functioning as an additional layer of examination, the found home movies follow an unknown South African woman as she travels from Cape Town to Zimbabwe, a route mimicked by Horn. This form of visual representation seeks to call attention to the ongoing ethical issues and privileges researchers / filmmakers encounter within the context of the post-colonial landscape of Southern Africa.
