Outside The Oranges Are Blooming - A man battles solitude in a vanishing village

High among the mountains, a solitary man ekes out an existence in a village slowly disappearing. He laments his condition as he wanders through the misty natural surroundings and roams the dark, empty halls of his house. He feels trapped, doomed to serve the very environment he has come to reject.

This insightful documentary delves into his introspective journey, capturing the poignant struggle of a man at odds with his isolated existence and the inexorable passage of time.
