Synopsis

The tragic experience of a child’s death is explored through the quintessential mythical script – the Genesis – and the recalling of an ancient rural ritual. Giovanni’s way to cope with grief is delicate and silent. In such a way, memories arise, the heart calms down and the cry becomes speech.
