    Jean-Paul Colmor is 74 years old. After an accident, he took an early retreat and has been collecting cars, wrecks and junk for the last 40 years. Living among tons and tons of debris, he quietly works all day on his unimaginable property, furnishing and dealing car parts to mechanics and other iron afficionados. One day… four intruders visit Colmor in search of a corner of twisted paradise. Carcasses uses documentary and fictitious elements to try getting at the soul of an unthinkable place.
