In the wake of a global disaster in the near future, a man wandering a sick and inhospitable land in search of his family arrives in a small town in northern Italy, where he meets a mysterious old survivor with whom he begins a dialogue that leads to a disconcerting awakening. With this short film we want to propose an original and disenchanted vision of the myth of apocalypse, in which the end of the world actually marks the beginning of a new era.

DIRECTOR’S NOTES:
This idea is born out of the passion for the sci-fi genre, conditioned both by cinema and literature. There is also the desire to continue, as with previous experiences, to get involved with genre cinema and its ability to tell stories through the use of suggestive style.
