Starting with existing footage shot for a previous film, the director continues his investigation of youth and identity, portraying a young shepherd boy waiting for his older brother to come back from the initiation school. Not without a hint of humour, the portrait of the director in his childhood disguised as herd boy stands there as a reminder of the distance between fantasy and reality and the gap between the director and characters.
