Theo, a 27-year-old with Down’s syndrome, lives with his father in a workshop in the middle of an isolated forest.

They share daily life, understanding each other without the need to talk, but one day, the father goes away on a trip, leaving his son alone with his visions.

Theo decides to start a new life. His identity and his desires unfold in a flood of impressions and experiences, and the days alone in the forest become a journey of self-discovery and self-determination.
