Synopsis

Aurora is a gypsy woman who lives in a phantom village in the south sierra. She spends her days while the village empties, animals die, houses burn and the field dries. The arrival of a new forest ranger will make Aurora understand the signs of a mobile world that tries to wake her from the lethargy.
