On a three-tiered stage in the countryside, the mellifluous voice of an auctioneer can induce grizzled farmers to buy broken shovels. His two sons help out with the business, but it's his strangely mute young daughter who seduces auction-goers with her elaborate vintage costumes. When she disappears, the younger brother begins a lifelong search that ultimately leads him to the silent, experimental cinema of Molly O. This tale of unshakeable dreams explores an unstable world where nothing is certain except what we hope for.
