Seven years ago, a contractor was commissioned to tear down a decaying barn in the small New Hampshire town of Nelson. On the second floor were an old film projector and seven reels of highly volatile nitrate films that weren't even stored in cans. Four of the films had been considered lost including the 1911 Mary Pickford short "Their First Misunderstanding," a comedy-drama about a newlywed couple's first argument.
