by Luis Pizarro
Finding a book in Belgium in his grandfather’s forgotten language, the filmmaker is carried away by learning words related to nature. The further he goes, the more he discovers the past life of his grandfather and his homeland. He documents everything in a writing and filming diary that he shares with his mother who still lives in Peru. The new knowledge will allow him to interpret symbols of Belgian nature, his second home, from the darkest day of the year to the lightest, and in this transition a character from his own imagination appears and confronts him with the creation of this film.
