This feature length film shot on black-and-white super-16mm tells the story of a 74-year-old ex-professor who, after twenty years of living away from Philadelphia, the city in which he grew up, returns to visit his hermit brother who has perfected his freakish steel-trap memory. As a result, however, his apartment has become an unlivable and unsanitary place. When he goes out to buy him some much needed cleaning supplies, he finds himself lost in a city he no longer knows. By sheer happenstance, he bumps into an old friend, a wold-class cut-up, who takes him to a place of importance to their past. Schweitzer, there, realizes he must reconcile with the brother he has not spoken to and has refused to understand for most of his life.
