The film is a cinematic contemplation, an allegory that aims to portray life itself.
A small boy carries a candle in the streets of an old town.
A young man climbs a mountain peak.
An old man brings water from a forest brook.
What unites them is the idea of fundamental human duty buried under what appears to be a futile task. Is life a circle, a river that flows back to its source? Is every man a doomed Sisyphus? Or is it through his struggle that the meaning of man's path spreads beyond the purpose of his journey?
