An intersection of life and death during one day and night. In a remote place somewhere in Paraguayan mountains, a man is accompanying his life partner on her last journey. Death is like an island of silence in the vast ocean of life. Directed by the sound editor and director Pablo Lamar, the compelling minimalist debut with its powerful film language won the jury award at the Rotterdam IFF.
