SYNOPSIS

A 13-year-old boy disappeared without trace for a week. The film begins with his reappearance in the school yard, dirty and changed. What he was looking for - an extreme closeness to nature or death, triggered by the recent loss of his father - his mother and teachers can only guess. The boy’s behaviour invalidates, what they have taken for granted until now.
