Description
Fernando, a solitary ornithologist, is looking for black storks which live along a river in northern Portugal and are in danger of extinction. After being swept away by the rapids, he is saved by a Chinese couple going on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. As he tries to make his way back through a dark, impenetrable forest, he comes upon unforeseen obstacles and unexpected people who put him to the test. An interior metamorphosis will transform Fernando into a new man: inspired, multifaceted and illuminated.
