    • Synopsis
    • A young man goes back home after years of travel. He had left behind his house and a woman. Back in this house, he fights against absence and oblivion. He explores every square foot of space, a space as familiar as it is forgotten. His memories mingle with the nature of this space and eventually bring forth the past, which is to say the woman he had abandoned. This young woman assimilated this space much better after all these years of his absence. During these years, she also nurtured the hope of his eventual return to the point that this idea became an obsession guiding her way throughout the house. After so many years apart trying to reconcile nostalgia with hope, mixing up past with present, is it going to be the true, long-awaited reunion, or is it just the fantasies of two protagonists who mingle in temporal and spatial delirium representing home as the end of hope, and the end of the trip?
