Solitude is the shepherd’s eternal companion, a truth as old as the thousand-year-old tree that he sits beneath alongside his flock, watching the hours go by. Yet, the leaves rustling in the passing wind may be an omen of change in Antonio Roja’s life. The arrival of Karim, a Moroccan who has managed to cross the sea to come to a new land, solid, though unknown, may be disquieting for them both.
