At dawn, a group of peasants tries to rescue the body
of a young man from inside a well. Women veil their
faces in silence while men endure the situation. In the
centre of it all, a mother awaits her son’s salvation.
The wait is over. The boy’s body emerges from the depths
of the earth. How can life cease to be despite the
enduring renewal existing in nature? In the distance,
the sun sinks into the horizon; a new day lies ahead.
