A movie based on performance art situated between reality and fantasy.
The two characters move in an inmense deserted and frozen, in a dream land. They are creatures who are torn between life and death, between absence and deceptive illusions, including the depth and emptiness. The flow of the vast nature has no mercy, where the wind sings her lamentations and silent lullaby. All havens are relentless in the pursuit of beauty in which everything is a mirror.
Is it a game to play?, Is there something to sue, when the clocks do not show any more time, or when no compass guides our way?, Who is the player and who is the pawn who is affected when civilization has lost their daily schedules, and have only the basic rules?
In the Antarctic environment, a place where humans have no roots, no future, but only a temporary and fragile presence always at risk, all questions inevitably lead to humility.
