Nostalgia permeates this look at the Canadian pop-culture museum installed in a typical British Columbia bungalow by artist Douglas Coupland. Adapted from Coupland's best-selling series of similarly titled books and focusing on a typical Canadian home stripped and re-painted before being filled with a variety of such undeniably Canadian items as bilingual cereal boxes and Terry Fox memorabilia, the documentary also provides a springboard for Coupland to ponder Canada's national identity while focusing on the artist's relationship with his father and his country's ever-shifting relationship with their neighbor to the south -- the United States.
