The video speaks about the problem of our understanding of the distant past, presented through a concrete example of the 23rd century archaeology. The leading character is a professor, who takes the student to one of the main archaeological sites of the time, where beside material remains from the past, live so-called Plastoses. And it is to these creatures that the student-bluffer, obtuse as he is, just cannot resist. The main expressive means still remains the chroma-key effect, but the fine-art sophistication of the 'background' settings is evermore perfected (elements from exhibitions) - designed to the minutest detail in his studio. There remain some traces of performance in the video, supplemented with digital animation.
