A poetic short film set in an idyllic landscape which evokes the "vision splendid" of childhood.
Living with elderly relatives in a remote old house in the mountains the Child reticently observes the daily routine of rustic life and glimpses the mysteries of life and death.
Child: I saw him again.
Old Lady: Louder, I can't hear you.
Child: I saw him again... on the river.
Old Lady: You'll take me there at dawn.
