Short film that was selected for the main programme of Cannes 2003. A woman returns to her parental home, which she left when she was six. The cold winter turns into a summer filled with scents and memories; memories of a crash with a bicycle, of a blown-down tree and of a long crawl through the surrounding shrubs. Inside the house, everything is peaceful and safe - until someone utters a cry of distress.
