In 2005 Juliane Zelwies started a long term project. Every five years the filmmaker resumes work to draw a portrait of herself. She draws with great seriousness and measures her vis-ŕ-vis while standing in front of the easel, another time with the drawing pad on her lap or on the table in front of her.

The examination of her personal aging process is contrasted by the permanent renewal of the used technical equipment. Every time she turns the drawing paper to begin a new drawing, she reveals for a split second which camera model has acted as a model to the artist.
