Synopsis: Α documentary about the daily life of elderly women who live alone in remote villages of Epirus. A timeless cinematic approach built around the metaphysics of female existence, as it emerges out of the wilderness. Women, through their particular relationship with time, narrate inner dialogues and stories from the past, along with beloved song lyrics. They are the last living guardians of memory of those particular places.
