This poetic metaphorical film shows the passing of time and human life as a series of seasons through images that are exceptionally powerful visually. Each season represents a phase in human life, telling the story of a journey from innocence to love, hatred, reconciliation, and rebirth. A meditation on the human soul and flowing of time, the film's lyrical, tranquil takes embody an auteur change in the work of the director who even portrayed one of the film's protagonists.
