For over three decades, strange plaques with messages about resurrecting the dead have mysteriously appeared on city streets throughout North and South America, prompting Justin Duerr to seek out the story of their origin.
For years, finding an answer to this long-standing urban mystery has been Justin’s obsession. He has been collecting clues that the tiler has embedded in the streets. But as Justin starts piecing together key events of the past he finds a story that is more surreal than he imagined, and one that hits disturbingly close to home.
In this documentary, artist Justin Duerr, who began investigating the tiles in 1993, takes us on a tour of unusual and seemingly random clues, and in the process resurrects not the dead, but the innate human desire for magic and mystery.
