23 Kilometres. The last journey of a silent man

On the Damascus Road in Lebanon's beautiful Bekka Valley, an Armenian man with late-stage Parkinson's takes one last journey. 

A machine maker and an amateur cosmologist, Barkev can no longer speak. In addition to the tremors and shakes, Barkev suffers from the lesser known 'monster' of Parkinson's, the relentless hallucinations that swing him back and forth between time and space. 

This impressionistic film is a journey into the mind and life of a man with a crippling disease.
