Synopsis

Demester shares his time between his farm and walks with Barbe, his childhood friend. He loves her, secretly and painfully. Along with others his age, Demester leaves to be a soldier in a war in a far off land. Barbarity, camaraderie and fear turn Demester into a warrior. As the seasons go by, Barbe, alone and wasting away, waits for the soldiers to return. Will Demester’s intense love for Barbe save him?
