At dawn a group of peasants tries to rescue the body of a young man from the inside of a well. Women veil their faces in silence while men endure the situation. In the center 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 when in nature there is an enduring renewal?
From a distance the sun sinks into the horizon. There is a new day ahead.
