    • Synopsis
    • In the midst of an existential crisis following a recent break- up, Petri begins his experiment. Having taken comfort in buying lots of stuff and maxing out his credit cards in the process, he then decides to lock away every last possession in storage, allowing himself to retrieve only one item a day. Naked at midnight on day 1, and using a window ledge as a fridge, Petri has ahead of him 365 days of creative living. Inspired by the wise words of his grandmother and the childlike pragmatism of his young cousin, day by day he re-evaluates his life through each of his belongings. My Stuff is a telling comment on consumerism and the value of material objects in the digital age, while contemplating what's really important in life.
