On a solitary portage between the barren wilderness and a desolate city, a young man reflects on his troubled past and hopeful future. Honest, thoughtful and personal narration illuminates a survivor’s state of mind that seeks serenity, while a background drumbeat accelerates the pace of this starkly resilient, black and white cinematic portrait. (Alex Rogalski, TIFF) Recalling the aesthetic of traditional Japanese cinema this short film portrays a young solitary figure seeking his place in society. His journey from the North to the city encapsulates his struggle to become a responsible adult and seek serenity.
