A boy raised in the mountains films his home surroundings. He shows his sister, his father, their house with a treehouse in the garden, and the family’s old dog. He runs and cycles while holding the camera, creating choppy, chaotic images that match the energetic life of a child.
Snippets of a young life pass by, but the result is by no means superficial. The boy’s flowing thoughts produce observations that suggest a strikingly philosophical nature. He thinks deeply about life and feels everything intensely, and that is evident when he talks candidly about his doubts and fears, or disappears under the covers crying.
But as things go in the life of a child, a moment later his attention may be grabbed by something else, something mundane, and an existential thought or wise philosophical observation may easily switch into calling the dog or playing with his big sister.
