Daan van der Elsken, son of the world-renowned photographer Ed van der Elsken, is the subject of this documentary, in which his friend Joris Postema follows Daan as he reconstructs his troubled relationship with his father.

Daan is used to stand in front of a camera. Growing up, it was his father's camera. Now it's the camera of his good friend, Joris Postema. Together with him, Daan tries to get control of his life by confronting his father posthumously. Daan believes his father - who he takes after more than he'd like - is mostly to blame for his mental problems. By means of photos, film footage and meetings with family members and friends, Daan tries to fathom what his father has passed on to him and he makes a surprising discovery.
