Bosco is a forestial village of 13 inhabitants that is slowly returning to its natural state. On the other side of the ocean Orlando, with 103 years, pushes us on a journey that becomes a fable about the memory of those landscapes that exist beyond time and reality. Filmed over 13 years, this film places us in a timeless limbo and explores what remains when everything seems fated to disappear.
