Belgian artist Louis de Cordier bought a piece of land above the snow level from Sierra Nevada mountains in Spain. De Cordier has now built an underground library and a seedbank for non-genetically modified plants. The location at a height of 2000 metres above sea level, small temperature fluctuation, and dry climate slow the erosion of time. The architecture of the buildings draws on the design language of the visionary American architect and theoretician Buckminster Fuller.

The roving Gritt fights the exhausting battle of establishing her ideas into practice as an autodidact performance artist arriving the capital of the self acclaimed winners of the world lottery. We follow her during her first weeks in Oslo, and through her philosophical but rather dissociative voice we find a person with a huge gap between her inner and outer world. Retrett deals with alienation, dignity and courage of dreams in a poetic and humorous way, and shows a woman rarely portrayed in film.
