Patrick is the handyman on his father's naturist campsite. His spare time is dedicates to his hobby, designing and building furniture. When Patrick loses his hammer, his quest to retrieve it takes him to the farthest corners of the camping grounds. Sure enough, when his father passes away, Patrick's quest turns existential. As his safety bubble pops, everything he took for granted changes. Is he mourning because of his father? Or is he thinking mostly about his lost hammer?
