In 1926, Man Ray filmed a cinepoem in the southeast of France, and called it Emak Bakia, which is a Basque expression meaning 'Leave me alone'. Filmmaker Oskar Alegria embarks upon an exploration of the film and its title – was it named after a house? Or an inscription on a gravestone? The discoveries and detours along the way make for a charming, fanciful road movie about chance, serendipity and the journey being more important than the destination.
