Teie ees on seikluslik tragikomöödia eesti esimesest filmimehest Johannes Pääsukesest (Ott Sepp) ja tema püüdlustest filmikaameraga ringi rännates õnne leida. Koos hea sõbra Volteriga (Märt Avandi) veedab lennuka jutuga elukunstnik Pääsuke 1912. aasta palaval suvel ühe uskumatu nädala Setumaal. Sellesse mahub naeru, nuttu, napsu, romantikat ja kõike muud, mis käib kaasas ühe 21-aastase tuulepeaga, kel kombeks esmalt tegutseda ja alles seejärel mõelda. Arhiivis on sellest retkest säilinud kõigest 7 minutit materjali, aga mis toimus veel siis, kui kaamera ei käinud?
