A magical and uplifting tale. When Felix's plane crashes, he finds himself in a small remote village. The only thing he has salvaged from the plane is a Polaroid camera with ten remaining pictures. At first the villagers are suspicious, but they soon enter into a mission to find the ten most important subjects for the photographs. And each photo that Felix takes seems to have a magical effect .
