festival & awards:

An animalist couple, a man and a woman, quit their daily lives and locate to the countryside, stealing for an unspecified organization.
The man is tired, sad, without conviction. The woman tries to motivate him with the snatch of a goat. She wants to remind him the reason why they moved, as he used to say that they had to be like animals. The man is deeply moved and decides to leave the organization and the house they occupied. Into the wood their relationship becomes again joyful; they are free. Because of an accident, they separate and the man discover that a total freedom can be reached only alone. Their relationship breaks down.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
I was born and raised into the mountains, which makes it difficult to look at nature as landscape, armless, static. My place imparted to me awe rather than openness, the cognition of impossibility of a life outside a community, the respect of a senseless strain to hoe stones more than ground. I find it hard to partake of the image of nature that people have: an undefined idea of freedom. Freedom, assuming it does exist or it to be desirable, it's not free of charge nor of compromises.
