Enet Yapai was six years old when Vavrova met her for the first time in 2005 in Ambonwari village, East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea. Between November 2007 and April 2008 she followed Enet and her mother Alexia on their way to process sago, catch fish, or collect grass for baskets and mats. The film is an experiment of subtle, unanticipated interactions between Enet Yapai, a video camera, and an ethnographer.
