Renowned Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf is currently celebrating his 60th birthday and asks himself some big questions: What has been the meaning of his career? Does his work have any value, and if so, will it continue to be valued in the future?

Has his artistic calling, has his life, been of any use? The film shows the struggles of a celebrated artist at the peak of his fame taking stock, with pain in his heart, of a life’s hard work - while, just at the right time, his body of work is safeguarded for posterity.
