A man has retreated, choosing to live in solitude and far from anyone else, in a stone house in the depths of the woods. However, a mystery disturbs his isolation; at the same time every night, the darkness of the woods is broken by a light that shines on the other side of the valley. What is it? The inhabitant of another deserted town? A forgotten streetlight that comes on due to an electrical contact? a UFO? One day the man travels to the origin of the light’s source. When he reaches the source of the light, he finds a little boy, who also lives alone in his home in the depths of the woods and who seems to be from another era or even from another planet. Who is the little boy? What ties him to the man? An astonishing story full of mystery and consolation.
