In "0.5 km2 North" the birth of a new memory is the center of the story. The film starts with New Year's Eve. For the last time, a new year is rung in and celebrated, whereupon slow but certainly people leave and life disappears until only the bald skeleton of the building remains. After 50 years of faithful service and a lot of memories, of happy and less than happy moments, of the people who have lived there, the flats are sacked and are replaced by something new. The buildings receive a voice by texts, which appears on the walls. The inhabitants form a living component of the flat, the blood in its veins. They will, after the flat has been bled out, take their memories of the flat and bring them to their new living space. Gradually, memories are created. A mother must bid farewell to her condominium after 20 years. Three photographers photograph the district they lived in during their time studying. Together they stand for the collective memory of the flat. We follow the inhabitants in different, at puffs humorous, phases of the migration. Because of this, we see how life is slowly disappearing out of the district and how the inhabitants handle it all in their own manner.
