How do you relive a memory? Returning to a meaningful childhood location where he builds a cabin that he will live out of and film from for months, Oskar Alegria tries his best to answer that question. In creating rituals and rules to live by, observing the passing of time, and conducting introspective interviews with solitary shepherds, Alegria presents a whimsical and spacious environment where memories are recalled, old familiar places are made new, and pastoral freedom leads to creative energy and inspiration.
