A new perspective
Una nuova prospettiva
In a dense forest, in the early morning of an unidentifiable remote era, a 12-year-old boy is concentrated in his hunt for precious objects together with his companions. Attracted by strange sounds, the boy decides to move on to an abandoned wooden hut. Through the window, the boy discovers a crying child. She seems lost. The boy decides to open the window, but once it is open, he discovers bodies piled up in a row, soldiers and a tall barbed wire. Called back by his friends to go home, the boy crosses the fence trying to find the girl. Where are we? … and when?
