Synopsis

A father makes an unexpected return after years of absence and takes his teenage son on an excursion. In a deep forest, the man teaches the boy the hard skills of survival: lighting a fire, building a shelter, hiding underwater. The trip turns into a strenuous exercise in endurance and male ideals. Inspired by author Ryszard Krynicki’s story Silence.
