Plot synopsis
One winter at the edge of a village, a man was found in an abandoned car. He had nothing on him other than a packet of old photographs. He was housed in the village church and was assigned to take care of an old nun. He vaguely remembered his previous life — but what he remembered was best forgotten. Before his death he confessed that… he was happy. However, are the ones abandoned in this desolate territory, on the edge of civilization, indeed happy?
