A path and someone walking. We observe several atmospheric phenomena such as: the thick haze of mist gradually reveals the way, various intensities of rain falling waved by wind gusts. We move between a haunting and strange serenity which is interrupted by sounds of creatures who live in this place. A way of looking that is used to link space and thought. We move at same time as the landscape with a movement of camera that slides between the natural rhythms of the forest.
