A tree, a house, emptiness, isolation. The head of the family, an old man, is at the point of death. He would like to give his name to one of his newborn grandsons but he does not acknowledge any of them before he dies. Three cousins without a name live in this primitive world. They seek pleasure and salvation. The first one in restraint and submission, the second in love, the third in power, violence and cruelty. The father of the second, back from war, gives the third the keys to a stronger and immense power.
The tree, witness to life for 1000 years, contemplates what will happen in 2000 years. The tree, a witness to life for 1000 years, contemplates what will happen in 2000 years.
