, follows the story of an old man who has spent years living cut off from civilisation. One day, a young man turns up at the elderly recluse’s place after getting lost. Filled with compassion, he takes him in. The young man remains silent, and although they don’t speak to one another, a strange bond starts to develop between the two men. But one day, the police come knocking, and it turns out that the fugitive is, in fact, a murderer – and so the old man will have to make a heart-wrenching decision.
