A logger discovers a brutally mutilated body in the forest and falls into a catatonic state. He will receive the visit of Death itself, while an unpredictable and hypnotic pattern of crossed paths unravels.
A mysteriously peculiar creation, inspired by a fable by Jean de La Fontaine (Death and the Woodcutter) and by Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, this film is an enchanted and ferocious perceptive experience.
