Synopsis

The end of civilization has come: the causes are unknown, since no book has been written since the catastrophe. A father and his fourteen-year-old son are among the few survivors: their existence is reduced to a harsh struggle for survival on a stilts by a lake. The society as it was known no longer exists, and any encounter with other human beings is dangerous. In this regressed world, the father entrusts his thoughts to a notebook, but his words are indecipherable signs for the illiterate son. After the death of his father, the boy decides to embark on a journey to the borders of his known world in search of someone who can read those pages to him, in order to discover his father's true feelings and an unknown past. Freely adapted from the graphic novel by Gipi.
