Synopsis:

 Antonio Gairo is the only survivor of a terrible disaster in 1964 that hit Alos, a village in the centre of Sardinia, now a gloomy shanty town. Once his memories return, he tells the story of the life of the village before the fateful event and in an incredibly clear way, reconstructs the circumstances that led to the tragedy. A mix between fiction and documentary, cinema and literature, the film uses a wide range of archive footages to narrate the fatal step towards “modernity” taken by a small community of shepherds in the 1950s, mingling classic iconography about archaic Sardinia with the suggestive and fascinating atmospheres related to the Gothic genre.
