Poland, Denmark, Mexico, United Kingdom 2015 / 22’

A little girl arrives in a mountainous hinterland and attempts to create a new and secure world for herself in a wooden hut with an older man and his sheep for companions. Understanding between the two grows without unnecessary words, among the breathtaking views. A brief cinematic journey to the magic moments of childhood, overcoming fear and solitude.
